Jon was born and raised in the suburbs of Toronto, often spending summers running around a music camp in Northern Ontario. He recently graduated from the University of Toronto with a Master of Arts in Political Science and Public Policy. He has a passion for music, canoeing, and travel.

Last summer he became an Integration Counsellor at a Day Camp in Toronto that rekindled his love for camp life. Shortly after that summer he left for a solo backpacking trip around Europe, visiting friends and making new ones in Germany, Hungary, Croatia, and Portugal. Now he’s back in his home and native land and excited to join the NYQUEST team to help others with their travel aspirations and camp experiences!
