  • Jonathan has spent years amassing a wealth of knowledge about popular culture and the celebrities who put it all together.
  • He enjoys exploring a celebrity's life to see how they went from rags to riches and loves doing a deep dive to learn all he can.
  • He's obsessed with creative types and enjoys binging the entirety of an actor, director, or writer's filmography, giving Jonathan a total understanding of what makes them tick.


When he retired from the U.S. Army after 20 years, he found comfort in writing, and in 2014, he started on Listverse with pieces on history and science that interested him. Over time, he branched out, writing for CBR, ScreenRant, The Gamer, and other popular sites online. Now, he devotes most of his free time to churning out articles about Hollywood comeback stories, where the cast of his favorite shows are now, and much more. He began writing for Alb Media in 2016 and has written for Grunge, Looper, and Elasq.


Jonathan's education is primarily in history. He first earned an A.S. in intelligence studies related to his military service. His second degree, a B.A. in history, kept him busy while deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. Finally, he received his M.A. in history. After writing hundreds of papers on historical battles, nations, and politics, he used the knowledge he gained to become a prolific freelance internet writer.
