Hi. How are you?

I'm Jonathan. I believe the camera is a tool that can shake the foundations of power. I focus the lens on people building a better world. Passionate about telling stories of risk takers and their fight, I believe in the strength of the collective.

As an alum of UW-Madison in Political Science and doc|UW-Milwaukee, I am privileged to be a documentarian and video-journalist. I've worked in DC, NYC, Standing Rock, and Milwaukee with some inspiring organizations. Currently, my film team and I are in post-production on our first feature documentary - The Sacred and The Snake.

In my free time, I visit the fam, bike the city, play baseball with my niece and nephew, shoot hoops, dance poorly, and watch historically bad/bonkers movies - aka masterpieces.

Later,

Jonathan
