Jonathan graduated from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism in 2000, and worked as a reporter, photographer and editor at television stations in Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas and Colorado before landing here in California.

When not running to the scene of a story, he can be found running half marathons and skiing the slopes of Tahoe.
