My name is Jonathan and I have been writing since high- school. I currently live in Burton, MI. I’ve come to have a passion for poetry because I find it interesting and rhythmatic. As a youth, I played the piano and the alto saxophone, so I was always intrigued by rhythm. I’m 30 now and am still using that rhythm and combining it with writing.
I have a passion for music as well. If it’s good, I’ll listen to it. I like R&B mostly because it calms me and of course has rhythm. I like other activities as well. Including sports such as foot ball, basketball and soccer. I’m a big Michigan football fan and am happy for their good season. I like to play basketball because I have to focus and get into a groove so to say. When I was younger I could dunk, but now I stick to the layup and jump shot.
I grew up in Flint, MI which had its challenges, but at least I feel I got a good education. I took honors courses all through high- school and middle school. Although the situation wasn’t always ideal I made a pact to retain as much as I could learn. The education has served me well and I happily received a 3.68 GPA.
