Jonathan speaking to a packed crowd at Fulfillament #3 in Traverse City, MI


In our busy age we typically only learn about what people do, not who they are. The best way to get to know someone is through their story.  

In September of 2015, I had the opportunity to share my story at Fulfillament #3 in Traverse City, MI.


A Master Facilitator

I am one of only a handful of Paterson LifePlan™ facilitators in the world certified at the Master Level.  Since 2010 I have been retained by Otterbox™ to guide their leaders through the LifePlan™ process. I've helped hundreds of individuals create a crystal clear strategy to proactively chart their pathway in life.  For my entire vocational career I have facilitated process that leads to breakthrough thinking.

A Strategist

My mind lives in the realm of keen observation, insightful questioning, and creative possibilities.  I naturally provide the framework for leaders to uncover truth, see possibilities and chart their pathway.

A Forensic Engineer

I am a licensed professional engineer by training and graduated magna cum laude from the University of Notre Dame's mechanical engineering program.

For over 15 years I ran a successful consulting practice as an "engineer of last resort", called in to solve the unsolvable problems in large commercial buildings.  It is common that my clients today tell me that I've just performed forensic engineering on their life or business.

A Story Teller

My love for adventure coupled with my past life experiences lend to a great story. I was honored to share my story with other life adventurers at The Fulfillament Story Telling Event that featured local entrepreneurs who shared their story to fulfillment through vocation.  

A Transformational Guide

I am an authority on the slow death that occurs when one is misaligned with their true self and as a result I lived for years with limiting chronic pain.  Clarity helped me see the truth of my story and gave me the courage to do the work to transform to freedom from pain and a world of possibilities.  I am living proof of the physical manifestation of emotional pain.  My journey and my story shape who I am.  Today I use my story and energy to help others unleash their potential.

A Teacher

I have spent time as Professor of Idea and Opportunity for Free Agent Academy in Woodland Park, CO, taught a class at Northwestern Michigan College, and currently help train the next generation of LifePlan™ Facilitators at the Paterson Center. I also draw from my competition background and national championship in Observed Trials and teach mountain bike skills clinics for fun.

A Risk-Taker and Adventurer

I love adventure, and it is even better when it has an element of risk!  I'm known for turning the ordinary into adventure at every opportunity.


I've had the honor of speaking at a number of notable gatherings in the Northern Michigan area, including the Traverse City Chamber of Commerce Leadership at the Movies and Maximum Impact.
