Director of Photography
1st Assistant Director
Jon was born and raised in West Pittston, Pennsylvania. A huge part of who he is as a storyteller is derived from his affinity for the blue-collar culture and gritty charm of Northeast Pennsylvania.
He graduated from the University of Southern California's prestigious School of Cinematic Arts with a M.F.A. in Motion Picture Directing. Prior to that, Jon graduated from Pennsylvania State University with a B.A. in Film & Video. He was a Schreyer Honors Scholar and finished with a cumulative 4.0 grade-point-average. Jon has also worked extensively in the motion picture industry as a producer, assistant director, camera assistant, and gaffer.
He is currently in post-production on his second feature film, Baby Frankenstein. The comedy-drama tells the story of Lances and his unlikely friendship with a pint-sized, self-aware automaton.
