Jonathan was born in Kentucky and grew up there through middle school. To start off high school, he moved out to Phoenix, AZ attending Pinnacle High School where he joined choir, thus sparking his love for choral singing.
Following high school, Jonathan studied marketing at Northern Arizona University. At NAU, he had the privilege of performing with the Shrine of the Ages Choir under the direction of Dr. Edith Copley for six years. During that time, Shrine was invited to perform at the Western ACDA Conference as well as tour through the Baltics in 2017. Jonathan also sang in the Men’s Chorale and served as president for the all-male a cappella group; The Highlanders.
Following college, he started a professional a cappella group known as Side Note in the Phoenix area. With the approval of Dr. Copley, Jonathan was able to continue singing in the Shrine of the Ages Choir throughout his master’s program where he received a master’s in Educational Leadership. In the summer of 2019, he served as Media Director for the Ad Astra Music Festival in Russell, KS.
While in Flagstaff, Jonathan jumpstarted his career as the Director of Marketing for Prometheus Solar. Simultaneously, he worked as the Grad Assistant to the four a cappella groups at NAU planning their tours, festivals, and concerts. Now in Tempe, Jonathan is thrilled to be working with Music Celebrations International as a Tour Consultant!
