Jonathan's love for media didn't start with one particular film or TV show. He's loved them his entire life, whether that was watching Hmong dubbed films as a child, growing up with Disney animated films, or watching Saturday morning cartoons. During high school, YouTube videos, in particular, were a big source of inspiration for his love of music. That was when he also started to make short films with his brother Larry for their church in Sacramento, CA. After a break from making short films and doing video projects, his love for media was rekindled with the rise of Asian American representation in Hollywood in 2018. Today, Jonathan lives in Seattle, WA where he is working as the Associate Director of Worship at Quest Church and as the Seminary Coach for Seattle Pacific University. Visit hmongamericanseminarian.wordpress.com for more from Jonathan.

Larry is the third youngest of the four siblings. He is passionate about storytelling in all types of mediums, including films, books, and video games. He hopes to share some of the stories that have impacted him and to learn about other storytellers' experiences.
