REEL

Jon is an independent filmmaker from Texas and Mexico who currently resides in Detroit. He studied film and finance at the University of Texas. After graduating in 2013, he worked as a financial analyst and consultant. He later did a two-year fellowship with Venture for America; he was the first hire at a fast-growing beverage product company. [See LinkedIn for more details.] After completing the fellowship, Jon took a 3-month trip through South America — the food was great, conversation even better. Upon returning to New Orleans, he was compelled to return to his creative passions. Since 2016, Jon has worked as a video producer, director, and editor. He believes in the power of storytelling to empower social impact leaders and further social justice. In his free time, Jon loves reading, basketball (Go Spurs), spoiling his nephew, and cooking.
