Jonathan was born in New York City and has spent most of his life in and around the bustling metropolis he loves so deeply. He received his BFA from the City's most vibrant art school then left for a year to explore London and receive his MFA from that City's most dynamic art school. He returned to work in one of the most notable art galleries in town until his desire to tell stories and interact with those curious about New York's mysteries got the best of him. He has now been a local guide for nearly a decade and a half and would love to share some of his favorite tales with you.
