Jon received his Bachelor degree in Jazz Studies at University of Northern Colorado. At a young age, Jon is proving to be a well versed musician and an up and coming band leader. All About Jazz calls him and his trio "ones to watch" and that Jon's music is full of "mischievous Dudley Moore-like playing."
As a drummer, Jon has played with some of today's leading musicians and entertainers including trumpeter Clay Jenkins, vocalist Catherine Jensen-Hole, guitarist Al Rowe, and international recording artist Darrius Willrich. Since moving to New York in 2014, Jon has been featured at Rockwood Music Hall, Club Bonafide, Sidewalk Cafe, Williamsburg Music Center and ShapeShifter Lab. In 2017, the trio began its residency at Caffe Vivaldi.
