Jon's past experience includes working as a director, producer, DP and editor at Yahoo!. Jon played a hands-on, key role in establishing Yahoo! as a forerunner in original online video productions. This was Yahoo’s first step into original TV style series (webisodes) productions. He directed, edited and produced 5 original webisode series while at Yahoo! focusing on topics such as travel, lifestyle, subcultures, music, news, and politics. He's worked with TV hosts Bill Maher, Charlie Rose and Richard Bangs.
Jon's last project at Yahoo! was creating a video profile of the President of the United States in the White House Roosevelt Room. It was the first time in history a sitting president conducted an interview solely for the internet. This project was a tremendous success and received international attention and millions of video streams.
In 1998, Jon was a video producer for the world’s first e-commerce website with broadcast film footage. The company was acquired by Getty Film in 2000. He has also produced, directed and edited several short films.
