Jonathan grew up in Hong Kong and moved to Toronto for his undergraduate studies. Having worked within the non-profit sector for a number of years, he recently transitioned back to school to pursue an MA in ethnomusicology at the University of Toronto. Academically, he is interested in the theme of music in diaspora as well as investigating the ability of musical practices to be "a vibrational force for social change" (quote from composer and saxophonist Fred Ho). Outside of his studies, he is passionate about performing and recording music with his band Gestures and supporting other projects ranging from recording an electronic jazz duo to producing soundscapes for a spoken word artist.
