"Not everyone can become a great artist, but a great artist can come from anywhere." - Ratatouille
Jonathan's journey as a filmmaker began in El Paso Texas, when he realized nobody was going to write scripts for him to direct. Determined to get his stories made, Jonathan began enhancing his writing with his latest award winning film "In Your Arms Tonight." The momentum launched Jonathan's career to feature screenwriting heights, where he completed his first feature script, The Muscle. Jonathan is now developing several projects he had previously written in hopes of getting them funded.
