Jonathan hails from Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where his Fifth grade teacher, Mrs. Nancy Warner, instilled in him a love of performing when she cast him as the Lion in a truncated version of "the Wizard of Oz" and he's never looked back. He has a BFA in Musical Theater from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After honing is craft in and outside Philadelphia, Jonathan moved to Shanghai, China for four months to perform in a musical revue. When he moved back to the states, he moved to New York City where he currently resides and performs. In May of 2012, Jonathan became an "Artist of Silversea" on the six-star cruise line, Silversea, where he travels the world and performs his own cabarets in addition to performing with a select group in intimate concerts for guests who prefer the quality of able performers over typical "razzle dazzle" cruise ship fare. These Concerts consist of music of varying genres including Opera, Motown, Jazz, Broadway, and pop standards. Jonathan is a virgo and he loves dark chocolate.
