If a writer’s voice is honed from the uniqueness of their past experiences, Jonathan’s is a fusion of defrocked minister, malt liquor sommelier, and worst of all, union plumber (...only one of which isn’t true.) Self-taught in the “read, write, repeat” school of screenwriting, Jonathan’s writing career started with the good fortune of being selected for the Nickelodeon Writing Program.
Subsequently, Jonathan has had a blast writing for various animated and live-action shows, as well as co-creating and co-executive producing the award-winning Nickelodeon series “Bella and the Bulldogs”. He is currently letting his geek flag fly on CW’s #1 hit series The Flash, where he serves as writer and co-executive producer, as well as second-in-command to the show runner.
Jonathan has also recently completed his first feature film for Warner Brothers, a project that is so hush-hush, he may be silenced before he finishes typing this senten—.
Growing up in Guatemala during the civil war, Carolina spent much of her time indoors, reading and watching TV, entertainment escapes which later provided the foundation for her career as a screenwriter.

On the feature end, she co-wrote and produced La Hora Cero, a top grossing Venezuelan film that has been optioned for an English language remake. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two kids, two dogs and a cat that thinks he’s a dog.
