President

Jonathan is the founder and president of EventHubs. He's been playing fighting games actively since 1991, back when Street Fighter 2 was released.

He's also a full stack developer, familiar with Python, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, plus web and database technologies like Apache, UWSGI, PostgreSQL, Django and more.

Grey worked for an E. W. Scripps newspaper, in a fast-paced newsroom as the online editor, before he started EventHubs back in 2007.

Jonathan is the co-host of the EventHubs Podcast where he helps break down the latest news and information in the fighting game community.

From Street Fighter to Mortal Kombat, and all other stops in between, he's devoted decades of his life to finding and sharing news and information about fighting games with fans of the genre.
