Jonmar is an accomplished artist, software engineer, and singer/songwriter whose work has been heralded as magical by art critics in LA, described as “Harry Potter-type magic" in Billboard magazine, and featured by both Apple and Rolling Stone Magazine. He worked as a lead developer and designer on Nike’s Innovation Team at their world headquarters until launching his own business in the augmented reality arts, where art comes to life in breathtaking, story-focused experiences. But in the wake of Covid, his professional life was up in the air. Yet his heart told him to continue with his purpose - telling stories worth sharing, but now to focus on children who were stuck at home and isolated.
Jonmar decided he’d start a youtube show that could breathe life, love, and happiness into the hearts of kids everywhere. He knew the show would feature powerful storytelling and captivating music, but the magic really happened when he looked for a story-related domain name.
He found that www.story.dog was available for cheap. A lightning bolt of inspiration struck. He’d create a puppy puppet named Story Dog who’d take kids on breathtaking adventures.
Within days he created the Story Dog show, a marvelous mixture of adventure, learning, and laughter, with original songs that will fill you with joy, no matter what age you are. Think Calvin and Hobbes meets Winnie the Pooh.
And within weeks he made three full-length episodes and was interviewed on morning television, where reporter Molly Riehl praised Story Dog as a truly impressive show that can entertain all ages.
Jonmar’s own kids, ages 10 to 18, have been involved in the show, helping to write and produce episodes, and even appearing in various segments. In fact, Jonmar’s youngest daughter, Faith, who has down syndrome, is Story Dog’s best friend on the program.
Kids are saying things like “I know I’m special. Story Dog told me!”
And parents are saying “This is better than half of the cartoons on Netflix! My kids would only come away with positive learning! I absolutely love it! My kids were mesmerized. You got some hearty laughter out of them … Thanks for the great stories! I love how they are funny and full of deep character building.”
If you’re looking for a super positive influence for your own children, or want some happy magic for yourself, go to www.story.dog and enjoy the show.
