John Ward Senior Vice President of Content Operations at AT&T Entertainment Group
The "X" man is a talented and creative director who is able to tell a compelling story regardless of the genre - talk shows, sports shows, and music events. DIRECTV Entertainment has been fortunate to work with him for the last 6 years and I am proud to call him my friend for the last 18 years+. He is a rock star!

"Jonathan always has a positive attitude and brings energy to every production he directs. Not only does Jonathan have an eye for the camera, but gives the camera operator freedom to be creative as well. One of the few directors out there that sincerely compliments a shot and thanks the crew at the end of the day. Jonathan is a true professional."
Phil Stone Chief Content Officer at Insedia LLC
Jonathan is a positive, creative force and a Pro's Pro. He has a keen understanding of both technical and creative aspects of production not easily found in television today. He's an excellent communicator knowing exactly how to convey what he wants to each department based on his creativity and his vast knowledge. He's not only well-respected but well-liked by his crews and it's just a pleasure to be around him, I couldn't recommend JX more highly.

Working with Jonathan has been an incredibly rewarding experience. I've always been impressed by how he finds shots that other less intuitive directors may have missed. He directs his team in a way that brings out the best in the show he's shooting. But most importantly, he is such a pleasure to work with. In sum, Jonathan has a keen eye, amazing instincts, a level head and a warm and generous demeanor. A real asset to any production lucky enough to have him on their team.
