Summary of Article ExperienceJonathan has written dozens of articles on topics ranging from local history to personal health and safety to community events and activities to personality profiles. Some of these he wrote as a volunteer reporter/writer for The Scene, the monthly newspaper published by the Sunriver Owners Association of Sunriver, OR. Jonathan covered stories on water rate increases, business openings and anniversary celebrations, regional news and trends, club activities and community events. He also researched and wrote a series of in-depth articles on other destination resort communities - existing, under construction, and planned - that posed competition to Sunriver. This series was credited with persuading so many Sunriver owners of the need to improve community amenities that they passed a major increase in owner dues, including funding for a new $19 million aquatics and recreation facility.
Professionally, Jonathan has received compensation for articles written for a local medical practice, a tennis pro offering lessons and coaching. and a local non-profit association of volunteers promoting wildfire safety, water quality and fish habitat in the Deschutes River and wildlife protection.
