Growing up below the bridge in Novi, Michigan, Jon spent the winters playing pond hockey and the summers playing street hockey. He moved to Marquette in 2009 to attend Northern Michigan University, eventually graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Media Production and New Technologies. While in college, Jon appeared as an anchor on Public Eye News and on the air as a DJ at NMU’s student radio station Radio X.

Jon joined the TV6 team in the fall of 2015 as a Technical Media Producer and Director and later moved into the newsroom as a Videographer and Multi-Media Journalist. In his spare time, Jon enjoys hiking and mountain biking or relaxing in a hammock and reading. He loves baking his own bread and making homemade pizzas from scratch.

Feeling right at home behind a camera, Jon is looking forward to expanding his career and experiencing all the U.P. has to offer first hand.
