ABOUT JONATHAN (IF I HAD A BOOK, THIS IS WHAT THE SNOOTY BIO WOULD SAY):
Jonathan’s story starts in the towering Andes mountains of Venezuela, born ahead of schedule in the city of Merida. Fast forward a year, and we find ourselves in the Italian Enclave of Campione, Italy’s northernmost town – so far north, it’s actually located within Switzerland. Campione became Jonathan’s first home, although he often strayed from it to visit relatives spread throughout Europe. Ten years later Jonathan arrives in his new home, the southernmost city of the continental United States – Key West, Florida. Jonathan would later go on to attend Boston University where he received two Bachelor Degrees in International and Public Relations respectively. He now resides in Madrid, Spain where he works for Acción contra el Hambre.
“Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” -Miriam Beard
Jonathan’s interests are as diverse as his background, yet his dedication to excellence is evident in each specialty he pursues. An ecleftic past has taught Jonathan countless and priceless lessons. There is something that surpasses language, outruns prejudice, and transcends culture, finding it and conveying it, is every communicators ambition; be it by the pen, the word, or the camera.
