  • Jonathan has spent years amassing a wealth of TV and movie knowledge, which is only useful for two things: winning trivia nights at bars and writing about popular culture.
  • His obsession with cinema began in childhood, and he still enjoys watching obscure films and writing about them. Whenever possible, he hosts movie nights with his friends, where he watches the works of Akira Kurosawa, Ralph Bakshi, Woody Allen, and many others.
  • His goal in life is to open his own comic book and game store, so he's developed a deep understanding of popular culture and built collections of unnecessary games, comics, and toys that his wife barely understands (but lovingly accepts).


Jonathan began writing online in 2014, starting on Listverse with pieces on history and science that interested him. Over time, he branched out, writing for CBR, ScreenRant, The Gamer, and other popular sites online. When he returned from the U.S. Army after 20 years, he found comfort in writing. Now, he devotes most of his free time to churning out articles about the MCU, Spider-Man, Batman, video games, and anything else that interests him. He's written hundreds of articles about everything from "Star Wars" and the MCU to "Supernatural" and "Stargate." When he's not watching his favorite shows and films, he's writing about them, their creators, and every aspect of what makes them entertaining.


Jonathan's education is primarily in history. He first earned an A.S. in intelligence studies related to his military service. His second degree, a B.A. in history, kept him busy while deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. Finally, he received his M.A. in history. After writing hundreds of papers on historical battles, nations, and politics, he used the knowledge he gained to become a prolific freelance internet writer.
