Over the years he has made use of his talents as a musician, writer, graphic designer, and filmmaker.

In 2002 Jonathan co-wrote, produced, directed, and edited the independent feature film Moving, an irreverent comedy that has drawn great critical praise for its craftsmanship and ingenuity on a budget of under $9000. It was called “one of the funniest independent films of the year” by FilmThreat Magazine, won “Best Screenplay” at the Digital Visions Film Festival, and was picked up for national distribution.
