Hey there,
Jonathan here!


I’m an NYC-based Application Developer who’s well-versed in front-end design and development as well as back-end scripting and database management.

I received my Master’s degree in Education Technology, and I believe that just like technology can transform and elevate our learning experience, learning theories and user studies are also crucial for creating better technology.
