Misc: Jon wrote his first piano composition in 1989. Critics describe it as "dissonant, yet daring and introspective," while others have dismissed it as "a 4 year old slamming his arm on the white keys." Later, Jon heard his first Ben Folds Five record, then started writing about himself in the 3rd person. He runs occasionally.
