Introduction: Hi! I'm Jonathan. Actor, Speaker, Coach and we'll get to that in a minute. But first.. and most important, Who Are YOU? What's YOUR story? And what are you looking for in a coach? Right now, you are trying to discern if I am the coach for you. Let me try to help you out. At the end of the day, we both want a match that works for you. Fast Facts: * I'm an actor, a speaker and performer. I'm also a coach. * I have a BA in Theater/Psychology. As I coach, I help people get started and grow their performance skills quickly. Whether you are a total rookie or have some experience.. but not yet a pro, I can help. if you ARE a pro, I can help you clarify your goals and possibly refer you to further resources and coaches who can help you at that level. I am a pastor of 20+ years, an actor and a public speaker. I travel the country doing one actor, multiple character dramas and motivational speaking. I have a passion for creative, outside the box communication that wakes people up and makes them feel it is absolutely necessary for them to listen. I use my love of theater and my love for people to find ways to share truth and possibility. My faith is important to me, but I am also very down to earth and very comfortable working with anyone of any background or creed, young or old, male or female. I have curiosity to know what makes people motivated to help others change.. and to help them communicate clearly to help others experience life change. I would love to work with you... AND.. at the same time, I will shoot straight with you if I realize we are not a strong match.. even after we start collaborating. I won't waste your time, but I will also build into you and attempt to bring about the strongest version of you to help you achieve your speaking goals. As an actor I am big on presentation and the use of non-verbals as well as the spoken word, and you can be assured that I will be authentic and fair in my interactions with you and in the kind but honest feedback I share. If you are not pleased with our partnership at the end of the day... I will hand you your money right back. That's the deal, and I am sticking to it. I hope we get the opportunity to work together.

Jonathan has an amazing ability to craft experiences for others. He is talented at taking a concept and generating an experience for others that will take an initial concept to a truly remarkable product. He is able to work with team members at any skill level demonstrating a high capacity for empathy and care. I never stop getting tired of working with Jonathan!
