Jonathan was born in 1982 in a small town in eastern North Carolina called Pikeville. He has lived in Pikeville his entire life with the exception of the 4 years he lived in Raleigh while attending North Carolina State University. He majored in Business Management with a Finance Concentration.
His career goal was to be a Financial Advisor. Jonathan has always had an entrepreneurial spirit, a love for the markets, and a belief that everyone can become wealthy. Unfortunately, the firms he interviewed with did not always agree with his philosophy. Jonathan currently works part time as a budget analyst with Wayne County 4-H.
Jonathan was born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, a type of Muscular Dystrophy. He has always used an electric wheelchair and needs assistance with daily living tasks. Luckily, he was born into a great family who has always helped him pursue his dreams. Jonathan has 2 older sisters and he resides with his parents in Pikeville, NC.
Jonathan found his passion for writing in college where he was introduced to business writing and persuasive arguments. Finally, he was able to make a statement, defend it, and persuade an audience without being interrupted. Writing has become a voice for Jonathan and it is something he can do without assistance. He hopes that he will be able to turn this skill into a career. So far, Jonathan has published one book, My Online Angel, in 2010.
