Jon Watts, Director of the QuakerSpeak Project
As director of the QuakerSpeak project, Jon travels the country interviewing modern Quakers about their faith. The interviews are carried out in the style of unprogrammed worship, and often stray from the prepared questions and become vocal ministry.
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 the Germantown section of Philadelphia where he enjoys hiking in the Wissahickon, teaching piano lessons and working on new music in the studio.
