I've always had a fond interest in visual arts, whether it was photographing the warmth of Fall foliage or filming a group of friends hanging out and cutting it together for us to watch and laugh at later. It wasn't until a knee injury in 2011, leaving me with plenty of idle time and a vast amount of creative energy, that Jon Alexander, the filmmaker, was born.
My journey of understanding and perfecting my craft began in 2011, after I graduated from Full Sail University with a B.A. in Film production. Since then, I've been honored to work with entities such as such as PBS, A3C Music Festival, international recording artists and more! I've made it my life-long mission to turn everyday life experiences into compelling visual stories, challenging your reality as you know it and opening the floor for stimulating conversations. Ultimately, my goal is to produce visuals that audiences are able to connect with emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
