Jerry Stoner's Summary


A passion for creativity. That’s exactly what drove me to pursue acting. And it’s exactly what made me leave Hollywood for the bright lights of advertising. For more than 25 years, I've been creating print and digital campaigns, as well as producing and occasionally voicing commercials for lots of regional and national brands including the likes of McDonald’s, Chevrolet, Hyundai, Pella Windows, and Domino’s Pizza.
