Growing up outside Portland, Oregon instilled a love for the great outdoors. Whitewater kayaking, mountain climbing, skiing, and rock climbing were easy to learn and love in the Pacific Northwest. Highlights include reaching the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro with his dad, going for a polar bear swim in the icy waters of the Arctic Sea, cavern and open water diving, and completing several marathons.
In 2012 Jon moved from New York to Los Angeles and took up ceramics. He converted his back house into a pottery studio and now sells his work at www.jonprescottpottery.com as well as in several stores around Los Angeles.
