- 2015 Nevada Press Association Award for Las Vegas Weekly Amazing Johnathan cover profile. Judges: "It’s obvious the author is a wordsmith. Every sentence is well thought out. It’s full of lively adjectives and truly paints a picture of what the Amazing Johnathan looks like, what he’s experiencing and how he got to his current state. I felt like he was sitting next to me, boisterously telling his story."
