  • As a complete and total nerd, Jonathan has spent years amassing a wealth of knowledge about movies, popular culture, and the people who put it all together.
  • His obsession with cinema began in childhood, and he never grew out of it. To this day, he enjoys watching obscure films and writing about them. Whenever possible, he hosts movie nights with his friends, watching the works of Akira Kurosawa, Ralph Bakshi, Woody Allen, and many others.
  • Jonathan enjoys challenging himself by writing about the many celebrities who bring the movies he loves to life on the silver screen. Whether it's delving into an actor's body of work or exploring the life of a celebrity to see how they went from rags to riches, Jonathan loves doing a deep dive to learn all he can.


Jonathan began writing online in 2014, beginning on Listverse with history and science pieces that interested him. Over time, he branched out, writing for CBR, ScreenRant, The Gamer, and other popular sites online. He first started writing for Static Media in 2016 and has written for Grunge, Looper, and Nicki Swift. When he retired from the U.S. Army after 20 years, he found comfort in writing, so he devotes most of his free time to churning out articles about Hollywood comeback stories, where the cast of his favorite shows are now, and much more.


Jonathan's education is primarily in history. He first earned an AS in Intelligence Studies, which related to his military service. Jonathan's second degree, a BA in History, kept him busy while deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. Finally, Jonathan received his MA in History, and after writing hundreds of papers on historical battles, nations, and politics, he used the knowledge he gained to become a prolific freelance internet writer.
