About Jon

This is me on a go-kart in Ocean City, MD, on the front page of, in the name of journalism. Here’s that story.

What I like to do is to share the passions of others through storytelling. I enjoy explaining how things work, simplifying the complicated and being able to show readers a perspective they can’t usually see.

I am a communications specialist at the Wilmer Eye Institute, the ophthalmology department at Johns Hopkins Medicine. In this role, I write stories on scientific discoveries, patient successes and clinical care. I support the communication needs of Wilmer’s eight satellite locations across Maryland. I also manage the waiting room screen program at each Wilmer clinic and satellite office.

I have written for publications throughout Delaware and Maryland. Previously, I wrote for APG News, the news service at the U.S. Army’s Aberdeen Proving Ground. Before that, I covered southwest Baltimore County, Maryland, for the Baltimore Sun Media Group. Prior to that, I spent nearly five years in Bethany Beach, Delaware, writing about coastal Delaware and Maryland for the USAToday Network’s Delmarva Media Group, home of and The Daily Times, Delaware Wave, Delaware Coast Press and Beachcomber newspapers.

I am a graduate of the University of Delaware with a B.A. in communication (mass communication concentration) and minors in English and journalism.

In my spare time, I enjoy going to baseball games. Give me a scorecard and a camera, and I’m set. Visit to see some of my baseball photos. I also enjoy eating fish tacos, which I’ve documented over the years at
