Jonatán is a first-generation, Colombian-American director and creative director. His life and travels across the U.S. stirred an insatiable curiosity of the hidden stories behind everyone. His background in editing for Terrence Malick, Richard Linklater, and Beyoncé shaped his impressionistic approach to narrative storytelling. Jonatán has had the privilege of working on commercial short-form projects with Apple, Google, Billboard, Facebook, Condé Nast, and Spotify.
His narrative work has premiered at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival (Cannes Court Métrage), 2019 Tribeca Film Festival, and has won the Audience Jury prize at the 2019 SXSW. His love of music has led him to work with major artists, such as Ty Dolla $ign, A$AP Ferg, Flying Lotus, Phoebe Bridgers, Killer Mike, HAIM, Chromeo, Aminé, Meek Mill, and many more.
Jonatán is currently developing a TV series and a feature film slate. He enjoys photographing his friends, exploring his family history, and meeting new people.
