FILMMAKER / VIDEO JOURNALIST / EDITOR
Hi. How are you?
I'm Jonathan. I hope you're healthy and safe in this.
I believe the camera is a tool that can shake the foundations of power.
I focus the lens on people building a better world. I believe in the fire of the
storytellers I meet, and I admire the risk takers in the fight.
I've been privileged to freelance shoot, produce, and edit pieces working with a
variety of clients. If you're here you're likely on my wavelength.
Let's make some art together.
In my free time I try to be a good uncle, dependable friend and brother, and
outstanding basketball player.
