As an independent innovation and culture consultant, Jonathan works with organizations to unlock their strategic and creative potential through more inspired insights, ideas and people.
Prior to starting his own consultancy, he was a non-profit fundraiser, a strategy director at Publicis Advertising and an innovation consultant/trainer at What If Innovation. Over the course of this nearly 20 year career, he’s led hundreds of innovation and organizational capability building projects and trained thousands of executives from companies including Google, Disney, JetBlue, L’Oreal, IBM, Pfizer, MetLife, Hyatt, and Bahamas Tourism.
In addition to being an adjunct faculty member on Design Thinking at the University of Virginia Darden School of Business, Jonathan maintains an ongoing partnership with The Design Gym. This exposure to a variety of methods allows him to design unique approaches to fit all types of challenges.
Originally from the south, Jonathan now lives in New York City where he plays pick-up basketball and escapes the city occasionally to compete in national amateur level golf tournaments.
