One of Jonathan's special interests is 3-D modeling and animating, so it follows that his dream job is to work at Pixar Animation Studios. Puppetry is another favorite activity: He is the puppet team leader at his church. Jonathan has had the opportunity to act in front of more than a thousand people, taking on fun roles like Jiminy Cricket and mayor of the Munchkins. Jonathan participated in the 2008 national finals.
