The Boston native’s filmmaking career started at Sony Picture Studios as an intern for Academy Award winning producer Douglas Wick ("Divergent" franchise, "The Great Gatsby" and "Gladiator"). Six months later, he began writing his first feature screenplay and directorial debut, “Ante Up”. The ambitious super-16mm film played in limited theatrical release, was featured in Variety and The Hollywood Reporter and made it to #77 in the box-office weekend charts. Welcome to Hollywood!
Since then, Jonathan has directed multiple feature documentaries, Academy Award qualifying and festival winning short films, and Produces for Network television including 17 episodes of LIFETIME'S hit show MARRIED AT FIRST SIGHT. His projects have been seen on NETFLIX, LIFETIME, HISTORY, PBS, HULU, and more.
