The Boston native’s filmmaking career started at Sony Picture Studios as an intern for Academy Award winning producer Douglas Wick ("The Great Gatsby", "Jarhead", "Gladiator"). Six months later, he began writing his first feature screenplay and directorial debut, “Ante Up”. The ambitious super-16mm film premiered at Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, CA., 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 documentaries, Academy Award qualifying and festival winning short films, and Produces for Network television. His projects have been seen on NETFLIX, LIFETIME, HISTORY, PBS, HULU, SHORTSHD, limited theatrical release and more.
Currently, Jonathan is gearing up to release THE LAST DEAL, a feature action film that sold out at the Boston International film festival and won him a BEST DIRECTOR award.
