Hi, I'm Jono

I’m a Photographer, Creative Director, and Writer.

I dig stories — I love reading them, watching them, and telling them.

The first thing I remember wanting in life was an olive. Next, it was a dog. Then, supposedly, it was to go anywhere and everywhere, so much so that my parents had to put up a fence to keep me from wandering into traffic. It’s been 3 decades and that still says more about me than anything else that I can think of.

I grew up on the East Coast, running around New York City with a camera, where I fell into music and fashion photography quite by accident. After a few years of trying to figure out exactly what kind of creative I wanted to be, I found myself working on in-house marketing teams at several brands, where I learned how to utilize my creative practice to tell stories and craft emotionally resonant brand experiences.

These days, I’ve found myself living in Portland, Oregon because the light out here is magic… I swear. With a lifetime of creative experience and a decade dedicated to content strategy and brand development, I thrive on opportunities to make an impact on a brand’s trajectory through meaningful collaboration and honest hustle. Got a story? I’d love to hear it.

Also, for some reason my phone consistently auto-corrects “yea” to “USA” which makes me appear much more patriotic than I currently feel comfortable being.
