As a multi-passionate storyteller, Jonathan expresses his creativity and unique perspective through music, photography, and film.
At 12-years old, Jonathan saved up $200, bought a guitar, taught himself every Blink 182 song, and started a punk band. It was inside of pursuing music that he truly learning the principles of marketing... create something and get people to pay attention.
Jonathan honed his songwriting and stage skills throughout high school and college and continued on to play shows from Aspen to LA. His songwriting influences range from Third Eye Blind to Jack's Mannequin, Circa Survive to Yellowcard.
Amid 2020’s travel restrictions, inspired to produce new music, Jonathan got back into the studio. Stay tuned for upcoming releases later this year.
As a travel photographer and filmmaker, Jonathan documents his journeys around the globe to capture unforgettable moments and tell stories that inspire. Jonathan pushes his creativity to give remote communities a voice, share the view from a mountain top, or even produce an upcoming horror film.

In 2013, Jonathan Ronzio and two of his friends set out to climb two of the Seven Summits and volunteer in every country they passed while traveling between them.
Along their journey, they found themselves stranded under the unforgiving sun of a Chilean border town beach, venturing up volcanic cloud forests in the middle of Lake Nicaragua, exploring the mysteries of the Amazon jungle, and fighting a whiteout snowstorm above 20,000 ft. But they would also encounter unforgettable cultural experiences and discover a new appreciation for a simpler life.
