Jonathan’s career has spanned the globe over the years. His original classical and mime training was under Dr. Lou Campbell at Belhaven University in Jonathan’s hometown of Jackson, MS. There he studied with such masters as Avner Eisenberg, James Donlon, and Daniel Stein. From there, Jonathan briefly spent time collaborating with college classmates Chad Miller and Guinn Terry Davis on the theatrical production company Gratuitous B Productions. Realizing he wanted more experience performing, Jonathan soon left Gratuitous B to join PUSH Physical Theatre in Rochester, NY where he spent 10 years touring and teaching nationally and internationally with the troupe. Jonathan left PUSH in 2018 to pursue a freelance career that aims to more completely merge his movement and theatrical backgrounds into a cohesive whole.
