Jonathan is a former bodybuilder and boxer. He lives in the nooks of Europe where he's harvested seaweed in Ireland, given free hugs in Spain, and flipped pancakes in Denmark. He loves riding trains and wondering about the lives unfolding outside the window. His biggest passions are learning and travel, and he's ventured to 60 countries via hitching, couch surfing, and working exchanges. In his spare time he plays piano, makes handcrafted soap, and thrives on diverse workouts, organic food, medicinal herbs, artwork, street markets, the outdoors, and anything related to helping others.
His writing has appeared in dozens of literary magazines, and his debut novel, You've Got Something Coming, received the Black Heron Press Award for Social Fiction.
