As a highly acclaimed director, Jon has consistently demonstrated his ability to capture great moments on film from the remote Islands in the Bering Sea to the monstrous drilling platforms in the Gulf of Mexico, from celebrities in the sound stages of Hollywood to CEO’s in the glass towers of Manhattan.

ADWEEK recently voted Jon one of the top 25 directors working in the United States today, and he was selected by the American Film Institute and The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences to understudy acclaimed writer/director Blake Edwards.
In commercial work Jon has specialized in Humor, Sports/Action and Scenic Beauty.
