A brief history of Jon

Jon has been working as a motion designer and visual effects artist based in St. Louis for over 10 years. He spent the first 2 years of that time as the lead motion designer at Coolfire Studios. In 2005 he left Coolfire and joined Coreaudiovisual, the motion studio founded by Core. With a solid technical foundation in animation, this was a significant time of artistic development working on projects for Maserati, General Motors, Nike, Mitsubishi and others.
 
In the fall of 2008 he found himself out of a job, one of the casualties of the Great Recession. Since then, he's been able to maintain and grow his career as a freelance artist with involvement in independent films, broadcast commercials, music videos, and a wide range of online content. He enjoys collaborating with people who share a commitment to uncommon, moving and well-crafted visuals.
 
When he's not working on a project, he enjoys cooking, spending time around the house with his pretty, young wife Lindsey, their children Josephine and Willem, and trying to keep things alive in the yard.
