Romeo & Juliet
One Shakespeare play. One drunk actor. A whole lot of chaos. Jon is thrilled to be back performing onstage again in the roles of Tybalt and Capulet with Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet. Runs May 5th to July 9th at the Rockwell Theater in Somerville. Click here to purchase tickets!
IBIS Consulting Group w/ Google
In his ongoing work with IBIS Consulting Group, Jon performs interactive theater as part of racial equity training at Google. An element of these sessions is fielding questions in character, once the scene has wrapped. It's a fun job and fairly cool to dive into the everyday life of a Googler! Organized by Emmy-award winning director and editor Teja Arboleda (along with many other driven, talented people at IBIS).
Currently making the festival circuit, Jon can be seen as Jason in Automate (directed by John Scott 3 - screenwriter of Maggie featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger). Winner of several prizes and selections, including a Best Actor Award for Jon at the London Shorts. For a full list of awards and other info, click here.

These performances are taking place for school audiences (with two public performances - click here for tickets!) at the historic Strand Theater in Dorchester. Afterwards, Jon will have an ensemble role while understudying in Much Ado About Nothing directed by Megan Sandberg-Zakian as part of free Shakespeare on the Common. For tickets or more info on either, click here.

Jon can be seen in Crowd Pleaser, a horror short released over the summer & directed by Lucia Tarro. It tells the story of a young social outcast whose roommates treat her like she doesn't exist.

In November, Jon played the role of Justin in the pilot episode of The Field (directed by David Modica). This eight-part series explores the New Hampshire primary of presidential candidate Lucy Brewer - along with the highs and lows of being on the field staff for any political campaign. In production & coming soon!
