Jon has been behind the camera since he was a teenager growing up in Southern California, heading to the Eastern Sierras every chance he had. Since then, he has traveled to 6 continents and almost 80 countries, slowly experiencing the cultures, wildlife, and food that the world has to offer. In the last decade he has focused more and more on the magnificent creatures so threatened across the globe. He now volunteers with both ifaw global and team rubicon for wildlife rescue and disaster relief. After a number of careers, jobs, and places lived, he continues to look for places to hike, travel, meet, explore, and get lost.
