At DePauw, Jonathan led a comprehensive re-brand of the 175-year old institution, 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 social media and digital strategies.

Jonathan studied political science and media studies at DePauw University and earned a Master of Arts in Communication from The Johns Hopkins University. He is also a former Trustee of DePauw University. When not supporting the work of VOX clients, Jonathan can be found with his dog Gibson, training with friends at Crossfit Naptown, or tempting fate testing a new recipe in the kitchen.
