Jon is a native St. Pauler. Almost the entirety of his pre-college education was spent within the mainstream program in the St. Paul Public Schools district. You can say he received most of his education working with interpreters. Recently, he graduated from Gallaudet University with a Bachelor's in English Literature. Jon relocated back to the Twin Cities and plans to stay here for several years before pursuing higher education. The most important thing you'll need to know about him is that his obsession with cinema began when he first saw The Lion King at the age of four. Currently Jon pursues his own personal studies in the field of cinema studies. He is also an avid dog lover and currently takes care of three dogs: Ryder (black lab), Booker (pitbull), and Daisy (border collie mix). Additionally, Jon works with ASLIS' Deaf Advisory Board.
