    About me

    I entered the film business when offered a Leadman position in a tv production in its pilot year titled Queer Eye. This ran for 2 years and 30 episodes. Towards the end of Queer Eye, I joined IATSE Local 52 and took a Production Designer role with a small dramatic short film titled Abandon which was filmed in North Carolina. Thereafter I continued onto other film and television productions thereafter in the New York City metropolitan area.

    After several years of working on short and feature films, music videos and commercial productions in the art department, I went on to gain other design experience as a designer, design director and creative director outside of the film and tv production industry.

    My passion has always been about telling stories through compelling narratives. While busy nowadays as a creative consultant, I am always looking for interesting film and tv opportunities to bring scripts to life by imbuing locale and physical spaces with meaning to help define their characters for the big screen.

    Jonathan studied Interior Architecture at Pratt Institute and Graphic Design at SVA. He went on to obtain a BFA in Product Design at College for Creative Studies - CAD in Detroit and for the same at a graduate program in Umeå, Sweden.
