Hi I'm Jonathan Orgill

I'm serving my mission in Sendai, Japan. I'm a BYU student, a DJ, a music producer, a film lover, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Jonathan Orgill. I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, but my family now lives in Incline Village, Nevada. I love all music, but I'm especially passionate of electronic music. I carry a little audio recorder around with me everywhere I go so I can sample the sounds of the world and implement them into my music productions. I enjoy playing around with sound and like finding the happy accidents you get out of unusual sound processing. I like the open-ended freedom to explore sound that I have with electronic music synthesis, and I hope to pursue the Commercial Music program at BYU when I return from my mission. I enjoy storytelling, but since I'm not great with words, DJing allows me to express my creativity and craft and share a story through a medium I'm passionate about. I want to explore new ways I can add live elements to my sets, and find unusual and uncommon elements to help give me my own distinct sound. I'm slowly gaining a better appreciation for film. I've been watching classics and getting a feel for different director's styles. My favorite directors are the quirky ones who use unusual shots and colors which make for especially charming films.

Why I am a Mormon

I have gained my testimony bit by bit. I've spent portions of my life away from the church, but my life is so much more full of joy the more I give myself talents, efforts, and time to the church. I've felt God's undeniable influence in my life, and I've seen lives change because of it. I know God will bless me for every sacrifice I make, and I have found joy in that sacrifice and in serving others.

How I live my faith

I try to see everything I do as a missionary opportunity, and I've tried to plant seeds of missionary work everywhere I go. I try to be a good example, and I've had numerous discussions about gospel principals with my friends. They don't always agree with me, but they respect my standards, and it's slowly opening the door to them accepting the message of the gospel.
