Jonathan grew up in rural Oregon, learning from a young age how to respect and use firearms. As an adjunct professor at a local university, he brings this skill and passion to the concealed carry classes he’s taught for more than 25 years. Jonathan has served as president of his local gun range for more than 20 years and has honed his skill in pistol competitions since the early 90’s. He is a Certified NRA Instructor (for Pistol and for Personal Protection in the Home) as well as a Certified Utah Concealed Carry Instructor for Legal Heat. He has continued to broaden expertise in citizen gun ownership, technique and practical knowledge. Jonathan enjoys hosting small and large classes, mixing real-life examples and humor with important information. Other interests include hunting, bicycling and going on adventures with his wife.
