Honing his marketing and communications skillz as an Art Director at McKinney, and Brand Manager at Reeds Jewelers, Jonathan’s experience and proven track record make him a rare gem (get it?) in the marketing world. Displaying sparkling creative brilliance, Jonathan was a clear choice to fill TG’s open Creative Director position and was officially hired in October of 2014.

Jonathan spends each day, as he describes it, “…inspiring the team to new levels of awesomeness and creating the best work for our clients… or, something like that.”Long before becoming an expert in marketing fine diamonds, he studied Fine Art at the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) where he earned his fine degree in 1998. Jonathan’s passion for coming to work and giving his all each day is fueled by good creative work, hungry kids and debtor’s prison.
