Jonas has contributed to more than 80 books to date, and more than 30 of these have appeared on the bestseller lists in the US and abroad. In September 2016, he stepped out from behind the curtain and coauthored HUSTLE: The Power to Charge Your Life with Money, Meaning and Momentum (Rodale Books USA and Penguin Random House UK). It quickly became a hit, garnering multiple spots on the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, USA TODAY, and Indie Bound national bestseller lists. To date, HUSTLE has earned translations into multiple languages and more than 15 countries. His amazing coauthors on the project are Neil Patel and Patrick Vlaskovits. He is represented by Folio Literary Management Agency in New York.
Jonas is a writer, producer, and partner with his brother, the director and DP Alexander Koffler, at KofflerPictures, an award-winning, storytelling boutique based in Austin, Texas. The company develops short- and feature-length documentaries in addition to its focus on serving social innovation and branded experiences. Current projects include "Born With It" a feature-length documentary about GRAMMY-nominated bluesman Cedric Burnside. Alexander's project recently won a production grant from Austin Film Society. Another narrative feature film is in early pre-production based out of Vancouver, British Colombia.
