Jonathan grew up in Pennsylvania and Rhode Island and moved to Austin in 1999. There's no place quite like Texas - He can't imagine a finer city or state to live in.
When he's not working on the TexVet website, Jonathan is a semi-professional board game designer. He publishes free-to-print games on his website at Invisible City Productions and runs an annual board game design conference: Protospiel South. He spends quite a bit of time thinking about how the rules and systems we create interact with people to promote or discourage specific behaviors. Consequently, he's a vocal advocate for making systems that robustly support their overt and implicit objectives through deliberate and intentional design.
