About Jonathan

Filmmaker, artist, actor; I cover all the bases and explore them equally.
Originally from Michigan, where I began my foray into film and animation, I have now lived in Georgia for roughly 8 years, 6 of which were spent in Savannah, getting my Bachelors Degree in Film & Television Production from the Savannah College of Art & Design.

Over the course of my life, I have pushed myself to explore additional skills and art-forms including Digital Illustration, 3D-modeling, sculpture, stage acting, voice over, and singing. These additional skills have made it progressively easier to pursue my various video and film projects, and were invaluable to the creation of my latest short film, "Bill & Maggie's Intergalactic Taxi Service;" which combined everything I love about film, cartoons, fantasy, and scifi. I have a passion for creativity, which, as of this writing, is rising back up to a new, incredibly prolific peak. I'm currently designing and developing multiple original characters, producing concept art for my next film, and am making plans to get myself out there for professional voice-over roles. 2018 is sure to be a very active year.

Simply put, I am not a one-vocation kind of guy. My imagination has no limits, so I have never thought to put limits on my creativity. If you're ever in need of someone who can think broad and think outside the box, I'm your guy.
