About Jonathan Horst

I've lived an unconventional life and embrace it.

At 12, I created my first business. Started freelance editorial photography in junior high. Graduated high school at 17 and college at 20.

In 2015, I transitioned to being a full-time, independent front-end developer. Five months later, I landed a global brand as a client and worked with them non-stop for over two years.

Most my practical education has been on the metaphorical “street”. I'm a continual learner — always observation, listening and questioning. The past several years, I've been primarily a front-end developer and am entirely self-taught.

My formal education is in graphic design and art but I've worn a lot of other hats.


At the moment, I live and work in the Crossroads district of Kansas City, Missouri.
