Jonathon M. Seidl

Jonathon M. Seidl served as the deputy managing editor and acting managing editor of TheBlaze. He joined the website as an assistant editor in 2010 and was one of its founding editors and first writing hire.

Seidl's journalistic journey started when a college writing assignment called for a descriptive essay. After writing about the difference between his college town of New York City and his hometown in Wisconsin, Seidl's childhood newspaper decided to publish it. Since then, his writing has appeared in WORLD magazine and online with the American Spectator.

Although a Green Bay Packers fanatic, he and his wife live in Dallas, Texas, with their dogs, Gus and Beans, and daughter. Besides writing and sports, Seidl also enjoys playing the drums.

Seidl graduated from The King's College-New York City with a degree in politics, philosophy and economics.
