About Me

Thank you for visiting my website.  I am filmmaker, music producer, and choreographer from San Diego, CA.  I have passion for performance & creative arts. I have been in entertainment circuit & industry since 2002.  Many dancers, choreographers, dance studios, and musicians have reached out for my services, ranging from choreography, video and audio production.  I worked with over 500+ clients in my career. I have independently produced over 100+ music videos, short films, and local commercials.  Filmed in Miami, San Diego, Toronto, Virginia, New York, Philadelphia, Orlando, and Los Angeles.

My talent contribution involve  San Diego’s Wild Animal Park & Safari Park, FOX’s So You Think You Can Dance, MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew, Pulse On Tour, ZeeTV, StarPlus, SonyTV, many more.

Graduated at Penn State University with Bachelors of Arts in Communications and Film Production. My main inspirational roots of dance are Breakin ( or Bboying), Popping/Boogaloo and Indian Dance. In college, I founded the first-ever Hip Hop group at Penn State called Raw Aestheic Movement Squad.  I  choreographed for Penn State Ghaamudyaz Garba-Raas 2004-2006 team, which won 7 back-to-back National 1st Place Titles which then lead me to be teaching assistant for the Penn State Dance Department.

I was chosen to compete in Mumbai, ( formerly known as Bombay ), India as the first ever Indo-Canadian-American male dancer by renowned Hindi Film Director, Farah Khan, and established Indian Choreographer, Vaibhavi Merchant and I reached Top 30 on Hrithik Roshan’s reality show Star Plus JUST DANCE and was an assistant for the program. Bollywood Celebrity Hritik Roshan said “loves Jonathan’s style and he is a unique dancer”.

I  co-founded of Bollywood America and I played the role as head judge coordinator from 2010-2015.  I am extended crew member “I AM HIP HOP” from Mumbai, India’s top Urban Hip Hop Bollywood crews directed by Ruel Dausan Varindani, who has choreographed for Bollywood Celebrities such as Remo D’Souza, Geeta Kapoor, Prabhu Deva, Sunny Leone, etc. and TV Shows such as Jhalak Dhikala Ja, Dance India Dance, and many more.

I currently teach a mix of Hip Hop and Bollywood movements to students that are taking part in my annual festival, Bollywood Mixtape, it’s the first Southern California show that gives platform for kids to explore film, music, and dance all at the same time.  I’m known to be innovative, daring, trend-setting in my local dance & music community.  I share this passion of the arts to my students and future musicians entering the industry.  I pride myself in inspiring the next generation of artist.
