Jonathan was born into the city life and grew up with a pretty standard childhood. When the internet first came around he was fascinated by it and made that his one true passion. As technology progressed so did his skills in learning how they worked. As he became older he started to explore hacking. His first thing that he did with his new found skills was hack video games that he and his buddies used to play when they had time and didn't have to worry about adult responsibilities. As he grew up and graduated from high school he stopped dealing with his hacking and messing around with tech and went on to college. After he he graduated he went on to join the police force. He was the highest testing recruit of his class and got a job offer going straight into swat team, so he obviously took it. They asked him was his strong suits were and he got assigned to controlling the drones they use to disarm possible bombs and to scout out situations. A top secret agency was watching him and he didn't even know it. They valued his skill sand needed him for their operations. Once the out break hit there was chaos and that is when Jonathan got picked up by the corporation. He was trained even further with their field tactics and was flown into Chernarus when their current tech operator was injured and flown out of country. When Jonathan's boots hit the ground that day, that's when Operator Dusty was born.
