Hi, my name is Jon. I'm a LA-based writer/director. After years of working in advertising and crewing in film, in 2015, I founded STANDARD ISSUE Films.

To be completely straightforward I got into film for selfish reasons: I wanted to get to know like-minded artists but also to have a chance to share the stories of those unheard in a style that embraces a rawness that is seldom seen in our highly produced world. I truly believe everyone has a profound story to tell and I want to add a vision to match.

My current focus is editorial-based lifestyle documentary, pitching directorial treatments for music videos, and developing the second draft of my latest feature-length screenplay.
