LOS ANGELES, USA // Jonathan is a veteran of the U.S. Army 82nd Airborne Division and has over 25 years of entertainment experience, most of it with Walt Disney Studios, working on the promotional creative execution for Disney live action, Marvel, and Lucas titles, and back in the day, Miramax, Dimension, and Touchstone.

Before moving to Los Angeles, Jonathan received his B.S.A. in Television Performance and Production from Ohio University. Following three years as a radio sports broadcaster, he returned to O.U. to earn his M.S.A. in Sports Administration/Marketing and went on to serve as the Director of Marketing and Corporate Sponsorships with the World Wrestling Federation for six years.

Jonathan has been fortunate enough to pick up awards along the way, but as a veteran Army paratrooper, one of his favorites is winning the inaugural Santini Patriot Spirit award for his documentary, "Lt. Dan Band: For The Common Good" featuring Academy Award-nominated actor Gary Sinise as he and his band perform and support our nation’s military, first responders, and their families around the globe, including in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Jonathan also appreciates that his two children think he really rocks because he works on titles like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Avengers, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Pirates of the Caribbean, and more. Jonathan’s favorite TV show? Watching Ohio State football with his wife and kids!
