Born and raised in Wisconsin in the northern United States, Jonny has been based in Los Angeles for the better part of the past decade. Directing projects for Red Bull, BMW, Google, and McDonald’s, he’s managed to avoid any niche labels as he works with clients of all shapes and sizes.
Jonny’s directorial credits include hundreds of commercials and pieces of branded content. His award-winning projects include the reality web series “On Pace with Pastrana” which was nominated for a Realscreen Award and the BMW mini-doc “Concept 90,” which took home a German Design Award and Good Design Award. A 2nd Unit Director for YouTube’s “What Does 2013 Say?,” the video went viral, garnering the third-most views ever recorded in 24 hours. His most recent client is an Anheuser-Busch relaunch, Cerveza Montejo, while a shoot he directed for a tech startup at the end of ’18 just nabbed an honoree spot at the Webby’s.
His style suits everything we are about at RF and his work reflects exactly that. Jonny is based in LA and is a regular visitor to friends and family in New Zealand - we are excited to offer his skill set to the NZ market and produce projects with him moving forward.
