Jon Watts is a Quaker filmmaker, blogger, and musician. He has recorded several Quaker-themed albums, including Clothe Yourself in Righteousness and A Few Songs Occasioned.

As director of the QuakerSpeak project, Jon travels the country interviewing Friends who have great stories, offer perspectives on modern Quakerism, or just want to play on camera.

In the editing room, Jon works his magic to capture the essence of those interviews in internet-bite-sized videos, which get posted every Thursday.

Jon lives in West Philadelphia where he enjoys brewing Kombucha, teaching piano lessons and working on new music in the studio.
