Jon was born and raised somewhere atop the frozen tundra that is Minnesota. Though a successful escapee following college and a six-year stint in the Minnesota Air National Guard, he remains a prisoner of his northern accent. (Ya, you could say it sounds something like Jerry Lundegaard's from the Cohen Brother's flick, "Fargo".) Since 2007, Jon spent a good bit of time living life abroad, and then moved to Maryland, where he recently completed a graduate degree in journalism at the University of Maryland. (Go Terps!)
He is now living the dream in Old Greenbelt.
