Engineer and Communicator
With a passion for designing new technology, as well as for communication and writing, Jonas was drawn to consulting as a natural progression in his career. As an audiovisual designer, Jonas is responsible for engineering a variety of audio, visual, and control solutions. Jonas models equipment in Revit, develops functional system diagrams, writes specifications, and creates standards and templates while frequently coordinating with architects, owners, and other trades in the process. Proactive and efficient, Jonas creates organizational tools and visually appealing, concise documents that deliver a seamless final product to his clients.
Jonas inherited his cooking skills from his mom, who was a professional chef and competed in cooking contests in Hong Kong. Although his mother never handed him specific recipes, she encouraged him to experiment with different flavors. He mostly enjoys cooking Szechuan food. His favorite dish is spicy boiled fish and dry pot, with chicken wings, noodles, bean sprouts, and ham. It’s a complicated process since Jonas makes the chili-based oils himself, blending cinnamon sticks, orange peels, bay leaves, and a variety of ingredients.
Prior to TEECOM, Jonas worked in music journalism, where he curated playlists for various publications. His specialty is electronic, independent, and experimental music, although he is also a fan of pop music and engages in other genres frequently. Jonas was drawn to this particular genre since he noticed that music critics were not covering its impact on both underground and popular music, and he wanted to fill the void. Some of his favorite electronic artists are Jai Paul, Nicolas Jaar, and Kelly Lee Owens.
Jonas is a fan of all types of animals and has rescued and adopted pets since he first could. His fur family started in college with two chinchillas. Since then his family has grown in size with the addition of his tortoise, a rabbit, and a cat. Jonas adores watching his pets interact with each other, especially since they are all different species sharing the same space, and takes time to help them through their communication barriers. He treats them less like pets under his control and more like fellow companions sharing his household.
