About Jon

I am a writer of short films, feature screenplays and scripts for television (whether half hour or one hour). I write in all genres (comedy, thrillers, dramas and coming of age as well as horror). I am currently seeking representation and I would love to work with other creatives who love to write scripts of all kinds.

Unique traits: I would love to do voice-overs for animation. And I would also like to be a part of a doo wop group. I can sing bass and doo wop is just one of my many favorite types of music.
