Brief Bio: Hello, my name is Jonathan Bryant. I was born in Las Vegas. I went to LVA where I majored in Theater and was in many musical productions. My LVA claim to fame was playing the Stork in Honk where we went to the Thespian festival in Lincoln, Nebraska. After graduation, I obtained a degree in Culinary Arts and was in restaurant management for 13 years.

During that time, I struggled with addiction to drugs and alcohol; it was a hard time for sure. It wasn’t until the passing of my father in 2016 that I realized I wanted to change my life. I am happy to announce that I have been clean and sober for over 4 years. Currently, I live in Indianapolis with my partner and work in the drug testing field as a Specialist in both collection and reporting results. LVA meant the world to me and that community helped me grow so much.

Skills that being a part of the LVA community gave me: LVA gave me confidence. I learned there how to be comfortable with who I am. I learned communication skills and learned how to be open minded and accepting of others. This community has taught me to have fun and enjoy life.
