As the director of learning design for the Digital Harbor Foundation, a non-profit youth and education-focused tech center and makerspace in Baltimore, Jonathan develops technology resources including apps, workshops, websites, and courses. He attributes his career path to the valuable lessons he learned at Loyola and his involvement with the student-run radio station, WLOY. “While I believe in the importance of my well-rounded liberal arts education, I can affirm that I wouldn’t be where I am today without the professionalized skill-building that I did as a DJ for—and later as an employee of—WLOY,” he says. Jonathan double majored in philosophy and history at Loyola and served as vice president for Phi Alpha Theta, the national history honor society, during his senior year. He began working at WLOY as a DJ during his first year, joined the staff in 2006 as a chief announcer, and in 2013 helped launch a pilot program, Radio Edu, which teaches audio and radio production to Baltimore city youth. “The seeds for all of the skills that I use and now teach to other educators were planted and watered during my time with WLOY,” says the Pittsburgh native who now calls Maryland home.

My Loyola education helped me hone my ability to learn. I learned how to learn. This skill directly carries over into my career as an educator.”
