Producer / Editor
Jonathan Lê is a Producer/Editor at Coelement. With over a decade's worth of experience in the broadcast industry, Jonathan feels way older than he probably should. He is, however, still thoroughly amazed at how incredible his job is and thinks that maybe a little grey hair will make him look that much more distinguished.
Having edited and produced countless commercial, corporate and documentary pieces over the past ten years, the projects he enjoys most are the ones with something meaningful to say. A story that seeks to entertain, educate and enlighten an audience is the ultimate success, in his opinion.
Jonathan is a lover of all things quirky and strange. He enjoys a rousing tall tale, movies with robots in them, and a nice cup of coffee in the late afternoon. He is supported in all his many endeavours by his beautiful wife Kendra and newborn daughter Amélie.
