Technical Director: Stagecraft, Stage Combat.
Jon has called Kalamazoo home since 1989 when the Kalamazoo Civic Theatre hired him to be their new Youth Theatre Technical Director. Since that time, Jon has designed or built shows for many area theatres including The Whole Art, Wellspring/Cori Terry & Dancers, The API Theatre, the Barn Theatre, the Knockabout Theatre and many local high schools. When he’s not building a show, Jon can often be found making theatrical weapons and teaching actors how to fight with them. Jon also works as a sculpture artist. His main medium is steel. The studio is named Dragon Tattoo Productions, and after you meet Jon in the flesh, the name makes perfect sense. Visit him at the Park Trades Building.
In 2015, Jon received the prestigious Kalamazoo Community Medal of Arts Award.
