A Brief Biography

CIC Jonathan Beverley is the oldest child of Benjamin and Cassandra Beverley.  He was born and raised in Middlesex and Gloucester County, Virginia, having graduated from Gloucester High School in 1992.  Upon graduation, he attended Virginia State University where he performed with the VSU Marching Trojan Explosion.  He transferred to Old Dominion University and received a Bachelor of Science in Communication in 1998.

CIC Beverley prides himself on being a country boy with city tendencies, a consummate gentleman, and a catalyst for social change. He has been on the IT and social media scene for over twenty years. Jonathan shares his social commentary with a perspective that is thought-provoking, sincere, and engaging. His discussion topics can be controversial and agitating, however he is adamant that this is the opportune time to be transformative in thought and life. Change is difficult. Cognitive dissonance is necessary.

CIC Beverley calls the Metro DC area home with his lovely wife and two sons. If he is not enjoying time with his family or developing enterprise data center solutions, he is matriculating through graduate school at The University of Maryland, Baltimore County for a Master of Science degree in Information Systems. He is also a staunch advocate for diversity in STEM career fields, an advocate for mental health awareness, and a fighter for social justice.
