About Jonathan

I'm a seasoned software engineer, a successful product designer, and an established journalist.

I've worked as a graphics programmer and an algorithm designer for Adobe. I founded my own software company, created a product, grew it to a sustainable business, and sold it.

I've worked as the interactive editor at the Associated Press. I've sold freelance work to The New York Times, Foreign Policy, Wired, and The Atlantic.

I also teach computational journalism at Columbia Journalism School, and the University of Hong Kong.

I've worked with some of the best in two industries: computer science and journalism.

And now I want to start another company, based on text analysis and visualization software. I originally developed it for journalists, but people who need serious analytics for social media marketing are already using it.
