My Latest Work



Jonathan joined McKinney in 2003 as group creative director, coming from Wieden+Kennedy, where he wrote for Nike and Diet Coke. At Wieden, he demonstrated a broad creative range, from the humor of Nike "Streaker," Creativity's runner-up for ad of the year, to the inspiring drama of the Cannes Gold Lion winner, Nike "Before." As GCD, Jonathan's teams won virtually every major award from Cannes Lions and One Show Pencils to IAB MIXX Awards (including the inaugural best of show) and three Effies for campaigns including the Audi A3 Art of the Heist and the Sony Bravia The World's First Television for Men and Women. Jonathan was named chief creative officer in 2008. He is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin.
