Writer and Director Jonathan Browning
My love of writing & directing was developed in the fertile theatre world of Chicago. Once I moved to Los Angeles, I started creating a number of award winning short films and I continue to put up new work at live theaters around the city.
I feel incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to continue to work with so many talented artists that I respect and adore.

MCH Talent, a D-Level Talent Agency run out of an ex-wife’s garage, specializes in representing a variety of performers. Their clients include a number of low-level actors but their niche is Paper Monkeys, people who dress up in costumes and hand out flyers. MCH just got a new co-owner and not everyone is excited about change.
