Studied thnomusicology (Traditional Music of Crete, Wesleyan University, MA 1969), Jonathan is System Administrator at KUNM, Albuquerque’s community powered radio. In 1998 he pioneered KUNM's Quicktime Streaming Server, that is now part of NPR Digital Services.

Jonathan also worked with Symbolics Lisp Machines (1982-1989), and developed a flight dispatch support system for Delta Air Lines in collaboration with Richard Lamson. This gave a simplified text-based view of the entire real-time flight operation that allowed dispatchers to make better fueling decisions across multiple flight legs.

Currently Jonathan is on the board of Avokado Artists, providing collaboration and technical resources for this 501(c)3 arts organization, and provides support to the Outpost Performance Space in Albuquerque.
