317-454-8037 \

Jonathan brings more than a decade of experience managing communications initiatives in political, governmental and higher education settings to his work on behalf of VOX clients.

Prior to joining the firm, Jonathan held communications roles on Capitol Hill and at the U.S. Department of Defense. Most recently, he served as Chief of Staff and Associate Vice President for Communications at DePauw University, a nationally-regarded liberal arts college.

He is the former press secretary to then-Rep. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), a leading member of the House Financial Services Committee. At the Pentagon, Jonathan supported the events and corporate partnership work of America Supports You, an outreach initiative designed to connect military families with dozens of non-profit homefront groups. He has also staffed television operations at multiple presidential nominating conventions.

At DePauw, Jonathan led a comprehensive institutional branding initiative, managed the university’s creative and editorial teams, directed executive communication, and led the public phase launch of the Campaign for DePauw, a $300 million fundraising campaign. He also directed admissions marketing, media relations and the University’s expanding social media and digital strategies.

Jonathan studied political science and media studies at DePauw University, where he was also a Media Fellow. He later earned a Master of Arts in Communication from The Johns Hopkins University.

When not supporting the work of VOX’s education and financial services practice areas, Jonathan can be found on a run with his dog Gibson, at a local Crossfit gym, or tempting fate testing a new recipe in the kitchen. He is also a former Trustee of DePauw University and a member of the Young Professionals Advisory Team of Goodwill Industries of Central Indiana.
