A few weeks ago, we set the intention to be more organized and interview boys earlier in the week in order to make Tuesday nights and Wednesday mornings less stressful. Naturally, this never came to be and we ended up interviewing Jonathan at 10 pm Tuesday night. He willingly met up with us after his shift at the seed at the Dessert House in China Town.
Jonathan Williams is a refreshingly easy going guy who is the perfect blend of shy and charming. A nice boy brought to us by word of mouth, Jon is a friend of a friend who works full time at The Mustard Seed.
When he’s not being tender with those in need and gracefully handling death threats from a particular unstable stranger, Jonathan spends his hours DJ-ing as DJ Crosswalk with a group called Transit.
We bonded over our love of Spanish slang and our childhoods of learning English through watching television shows. Jonathan was born in Santiago, Chile and lived there until he was 7 years old. After spending most of his adolescence here in Calgary and a stint in Montreal, he now calls this place home.
He left us with a hug, a smile and the best end to a busy Tuesday any girl could ask for.
