Link to information I provided to the American Community School in Beirut, Lebanon. Jonathan lived in Lebanon from 1955 – 1957; his father was in the CIA. "The best part for me was renting motorcycles (I was 13) and driving out into the countryside... parents didn't know. Usually I went alone, but a few times with friends." Then on to Rabat, Morocco for 2 years, leaving in 1959.
"My art career took off in the late 60's. I made limited edition silk-screen prints, etchings, stone lithographs, and paintings, which I sold in galleries around the country."
"In 1975 I bought a 3-story row house overlooking Washington D.C. and spent 3 years having it renovated. It was a fun house, great for parties, with a huge studio."
"In 1985 I moved to northern California. I continued printing for a few more years in California until the chemicals sickened me. In 1993 I went to Egypt for the first time. Then in 1995 I created and published a little book entitled The Wordless Travel Book. In 1998 I married Barbara Demeter, a successful banking consultant. We love to travel... Mexico, Bali, Europe, Turkey and Egypt. In 1997 In Praise of Women was published with a foreword by Isabel Allende. Many wonderful women helped. Mother Teresa gave me permission to quote her and had us in stitches; she had a wonderful sense of humor."
