Jonathan Medina is a screenwriter, songwriter and journalist specializing in music. He also enjoys writing about sports, films, television, food, life, love and loss.
He is currently writing Rock N' Roll Grad School - a book about how music changed his life.
He is an aspiring actor and stand-up comic. He currently resides in Kailua, Hawai'i where he is planning his next move. (Physically and mentally; literally and figuratively.) He hopes that his words will find a comfortable slot on the soundtrack of your lives.
Jonathan may or may not be the illegitimate son of Lester Bangs and can be heard on Radio Free Jon, his online radio show that runs the gamut from music to nonsense and everything in between. Catch the archives if you can't make it there live.
