MeHello, I’m Jonathan. Welcome to In the Limelight, my little slice of the web. Here I showcase my photography and blog about creativity, travel, and personal development. I also offer various creative services.

I live in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia with my most amazing wife, Rachelle. When I am not taking pictures or geeking out at my computer I enjoy cycling, cooking and reading novels until the wee hours of the morning.

In 2013 I participated in The Ride to Conquer Cancer in support of my many family members who have had their lives touched by cancer and cycled from Vancouver to Seattle. Together with my team we raised over $500,000 dollars for cancer research.

Less than two years later I found myself facing my own cancer diagnosis. It’s cliché of course, but I never though it’d happen to me.

I am always looking to connect with other like-minded people.

Someone once told me that I had a problem with authority. At first I was offended, but the more I thought about it, the more I had to admit it was true.

I do have a problem with authority. I think you should too.

I have always had a problem with being told what to do. It’s not because I’m disagreeable, I’m really a pretty easy-going guy.

It’s because so often what people tell us to do is really stupid and doesn’t make sense. It doesn’t hold up to scrutiny and yet it’s often accepted by the masses.

We live in a world full of people who love to tell us about all of the things we can’t do, and all of the things we should do.

I say we all need to ask these people “why”?
