Originally from the Bay Area, Jonathan graduated from the University of California, San Diego with a B.S. in Management Science and a minor in Education Studies.

Jonathan held various student leadership positions and became heavily involved in the development of the residential experience at UCSD’s Thurgood Marshall College. After graduating from UCSD, Jonathan worked within public finance in the Bay Area and founded his own tutoring company serving local students.
