Hi I'm Jonathan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in California, but I grew up in Alberta, Canada. I served as a Missionary in the Ohio Cleveland Mission, teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout northern Ohio. I earned a B.S. in Biochemistry from Brigham Young University and a M.S. in the same at Washington State University. I met my beautiful wife Miho while I was finishing up my masters degree, and we were married in the Logan Temple the following year. Most of my professional experience is in process development and manufacturing of biologics, mostly viral vectors, for clinical trials. I am also the father of two wonderful children.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I know that this is what God wants me to be, and I cannot reach my true potential any other way. It makes me happy, and gives me the opportunity to make others happy as well. In the Church, I learn the things that will bring us true freedom: who we are, why we are here on Earth, and what our ultimate goals are. I am free to be myself, and I can learn from my life experiences and challenges in such a way that I can be transformed into my best self. I am a part of something beautiful, wonderful, and worthwhile.

How I live my faith

It's a part of my life, a part of everything that I do, say, and am.
