Jonathan received an Oscar Nomination for his short film “12:01 PM” when he was 28 and was a producer of the full length feature for New Line Cinema (12:01) that it inspired. His first feature “Benefit of the Doubt” was for Miramax in 1993 and starred Donald Sutherland and Amy Irving and set him on a path that embraced suspense and action. From there he went on to direct three action features, the first one for NU Image with Eric Roberts and then two HBO premieres with Rob Lowe, Tom Skerritt and Stephen Baldwin. Concurrently Jonathan produced and directed an adventure reality show for syndication called Destination X and pursued his other love, the comedic adventure. He maintained a comedic improv team he started in college and has shot and produced numerous satiric shorts, several of which have gone on to Funny or Die fame. Jonathan recently finished “Plan B”, one of several shorts he directed and produced with a grant from the Albert R. Broccoli Foundation.
Currently he is prepping a thrilling modern day take of the Faust story set as a horror film to be shot in April.
