Jon Graves loves Improv, storytelling and facing any challenge life throws his way. He has a B.S. in Computer science with a minor in Math from Houghton College. As an attractive, charming, and eligible bachelor, he might remind you a little bit of what you’d get if you combined James Bond, Brad Pitt, and Dane Cook. Oh, and his lawyers said that we should warn you to not try that at home. (Lawyers just don’t know how to have fun!)Jon lives in Philadelphia where he creates software products that change lives for the better. In this case, it is for a company that provides software to help consumers organize their financial lives. He is an avid people watcher and armchair psychologist, who studies human behavior patterns in order to improve himself, design user friendly software, and help people. On his nights off, you might find him drinking beer, playing casual sports, or talking to cute girls, and on rare occasions a combination of all three.Jon’s post can be found here.
