Jonathan grew up just south of Atlanta before he attend the University of Georgia in 2005. He is an avid Georgia football fan and still visits Athens frequently. After college, Jonathan moved out west to the promised land of Colorado where he found out he was actually supposed to be born on top of a mountain with skis strapped to his feet. While in Colorado, he found his passion for all things outdoors, including, but not limited to, hiking, running, mountain biking, road biking, triathlon, skiing, and porch sitting. (But snowboarding sucks.) Jonathan now resides in Atlanta with his amazing wife, Kiara, where he leads a group of middle school students in their relationship with Jesus. Jonathan reads everything he can get his hands on and has recently discovered his passion for writing.
