Hey there, my name is Jon!

I have two passions: writing about what life is really like in Washington DC, and helping people develop themselves, network, and think through alternate education, or what I call AltEd.

With that in mind, my site is currently divided up into two portions – Discovering the District and AltEd – one for each of my passions.

Knowing what’s going on in DC is important. I’ve made a handy eBook Top 10 Sites on DC to help you stay informed.
