Jon joined the Liv Hospitality Team in 2020 as a Graphic Designer and animator. He brings 10 years of design experience & crazed thinking to the team and enjoys shaking things up to stand out. Jon was born and raised in Rapid City and earned his degrees in Art & Commercial Art from Black Hills State University. After graduating, Jon received his graphic design start at a full-service ad agency for over 7 years. In that time, he assisted in the strategy and campaign rollouts for multiple South Dakota Department of Health accounts.
Creating things is second nature to Jon. Whether it is in his role as a designer and animator at Liv or at home in his free time. He is obsessed with drawing, playing music, and watching Studio Ghibli movies with his wife and two furry children.
