Jonathan Rose is a journalist, multimedia content producer and a certified content strategist. As associate editor at the Denver Business Journal, he built the cannabis beat from the ground up while also overseeing all newsroom content surrounding the publication's awards programs.

He's helped companies — from traditional retail to ancillary cannabis — develop their brand voice while managing large, long-term projects like virtual awards programs and the Vangst Cannabis Industry Salary Guide.

Before joining the traditional press corp, Jonathan ran a small blog focused on weird music, weed and politics. His reporting saw his work featured on the "Rachel Maddow Show," and forced Texas Sen. Ted Cruz to stop using a track by Austin-based post-rock act Explosions in the Sky in a campaign video. (It's all about those small wins.)
