His career has taken him from the halls of Congress as a speechwriter and communications director for members of the U.S. House of Representatives to the couches of co-working spaces as a startup founder and solopreneur. He’s worked for internationally-recognized public relations firms and owns a Denver-based public relations consultancy. Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Jon received a degree in political science and communications from California State University, Long Beach.
