Kevin Wendell Jones is a native of Baltimore, Maryland. He is an award winning filmmaker, composer, sound designer, musician and VFX generalist who won international recognition through his work.
He started playing flute at age 7 and then transitioned to piano at the tender age of 9. At 12 entered into Johns Hopkins Peabody Conservatory to studio piano and music theory.

At 19 he joined the US Army for a career in communications and in the winter of 1987 he teamed up with some fellow military members and help form the showband group called Essence. Later that year they won 1st place in the 1st Armored Division Showband Competition in Europe.
After honorably leaving the military service 1989 he went into music production and formed Jones Productions, Inc. Within the next 4 years he helped develop other artists who went on to go solo with promising careers.

In 2015, he teamed up with Black Rose Dagger Films headed by Tia Cherie Polite and worked as her cinematographer, composer, sound designer and general VFX artist.
I enjoy doing Black and White images to convey a certain look or to tell a story that you just don't get from looking at it in color.
