TEDxManhattanBeach: Jonmar





Augmented Reality Artist

Jonmar discovered his love of the arts at age three, his passion for programming at twelve, and the bliss of songwriting at twenty-four. These became the pillars of his ultimate passion — storytelling. Now with the advent of augmented reality, his talents have found a unified storytelling expression, a singularity of sight and sound.

Jonmar’s augmented reality empowered artwork features immersive three dimensional experiences that pierce the veil of this world and fill one’s heart with child-like wonder. Hailed as magical by art critics across Los Angeles, Billboard magazine agrees, further describing Jonmar’s work as “Harry Potter-type magic.” Resin Gallery of Hermosa Beach, who hosted his recent debut, called it “the most impactful event we’ve ever held at our gallery, period.”

He worked on a special innovation team at Nike World Headquarters for six years and he founded Savageapps, an iOS development company, where four of his apps reached #1 globally. His unique approach to both development and design has been featured by Apple, Rolling Stone, and Guitar World magazines.
