-Jonathan Daniel Schenk
I'm an Actor, Musician and creative producer.
I feel strongly devoted to creating music and performing in projects that conjure thoughtfulness and awareness to what kind of world we want to live in; actively making our communities a better place for all people. I take pride, in that everyday there is a chance for growth as I learn from my faults and failings; striving to be the best creative I can be in whatever area of my life.
