Jonathan's love for music and love for people have promoted him and his work quickly in many different genres and art forms.

Jonathan has been performing on stage since he was three years old. A life-long love of music and the arts continued to propell him forward to pursue full-time music making. Featured on his first studio recording at age five, Jonathan was singing before he could walk. He got his start in church music where he travelled across the country performing with youth ensembles and competing at National Fine Arts Festivals. His first full band composition was performed when he was

15 years old and since, his music has been heard on the marching band field, stands, in churches, and performance halls around the U.S. Jonathan has over a dozen on-stage musical theatre performance credits and musically directs multiple live stage productions each year. In the fall of 2018, Jonathan started college at Evangel University in Springfield MO. He regularly performs in honor recitals and special concerts on campus in addition to performing with multiple on-campus ensembles. His involvement in church music began early and continues to this day. He has served on multiple worship arts teams and currently serves at Central Assembly in Springfield, Missouri, a church with more than 1,400 weekly attendants. In the Summer of 2021, he accepted a position at the Assemblies of God 

National Office in Springfield, Missouri where he served on the team that produces the Assemblies of God "National Fine Arts Festival", an event that brings together thousands of student artists across the nation to participate and receive ratings in over 100 categories of vocal & instrumental music, art, dance, communication and drama. The organization  involves over 60,000 students each year as the heart of the ministry is to see students "Discover, Develop, and Deploy" the artistic gifts that God has given to them. In addition, Jonathan maintains multiple musical clients throughout the year and has a private voice studio where he teaches beginning through advanced classical and contemporary voice. Jonathan's philosophy of music is simple, and is reflective of Ecclesiastes 9:10: "Whatever your hands find to do, do it with all your might".
