Almost twenty years after applying to the school the first time, Jonathan is living the dream of being in the nine month program. He has worn many hats: furnituremaker in Boston, ocean rescue lifeguard in New York, carpenter in Japan, high school teacher in Berkeley. Most recently he has run a plumbing business in Berkeley. Returning to fine woodworking has been the plan. He is so greatful for the opportunity to be here. He thanks his partner, family and friends for their love and support during this endeavor.
