Jonah is a native of south Minneapolis and an alumnus of Carleton College in Northfield. After graduating in 2014, he taught English as a foreign language in three public schools in South Korea. He then returned to Minnesota and has since worked as a paralegal in an immigration law office.

Outside of work, Jonah enjoys playing and teaching violin, basketball, and strategy video games, as well as cooking, running, and spending time with his friends and family. His favorite book is Dune by Frank Herbert and his favorite composer is Johann Sebastian Bach.

"I am looking forward to becoming part of the Friends School of Minnesota community and bringing music into the classroom whenever possible over the next school year."
