Office Manager / Official Translator / Tireless Dancer
As the friendly first point-of-contact at Award Productions – either on the phone or at the reception desk – Jhonatan (JL) is our meticulous office manager who ensures that all the logistical needs of the office are met.
But if you probe deeper, what kind of person is JL really?
“I am an extremely spontaneous guy,” he reveals. “I enjoy everything from camping where you could die and no one would ever find you, to dancing all night at a club until my feet bleed.”
Aside from a flair for the melodramatic, JL plays a key role in translating many of the company’s videos into Spanish for government agencies, nonprofits and educational institutions. Originally from the Dominican Republic, he beefed up his translator cred with a Spanish Literature degree from the University of Massachusetts Lowell, where he also studied Graphic Design.
In his spare time, JL enjoys watching “Game of Thrones” (the most “unpredictably terrifying” show he’s ever seen) and “Bob’s Burgers.”
He also likes to sing along with the car radio – if you’re lucky, you might get him to belt out a few lyrics over the phone!
