Full name: Jonah Kramer

Age: 19

Hometown: Hamburg

Favorite Weekender feature: Quick Chord.

Favorite bar/restaurant: Abe’s Hot Dogs (Kingston).

What are you passionate about? I’m passionate about many things – music, art, and more recently, stacking cups. I’ve been really into stacking cups, seeing how high I can get them in the air. Sometimes I can get them to touch the roof and it’s a great feeling.

Who do you admire? While many people inspire me I’d have to say that I admire my dog the most out of anyone. She has a great outlook on life and always has something positive to contribute.

What’s something most people don’t know about you? Most people don’t know that I memorized all the words to Guns N’ Roses 2008 album “Chinese Democracy” in only 4 days. It’s one of my favorite albums ever.

Are you a dog person or a cat person? All animals rock but dogs are really nice and also good so I would have to go with dogs.

If you had to pick, would you want someone with beauty or brains? Brains 100%. If we can’t discuss quantum mechanics on the first date then you’ve already lost me! Ha! Just kidding.

My last meal would be … 2 Grilled Cheese Sandwiches from Abe’s, fries from Red

Robin, breadsticks from Pizza Hut, a HOT-N-READY® from Little Caesar’s, and an RC Cola.

My theme song would be … “Smooth” by Santana (feat. Rob Thomas). The song

came out when I was three years old, but somehow I feel like it was written about me.

My best concert was … Aaron Carter in Reading, PA when I was about five. I can’t remember who opened but they were really good. Aaron had a great setlist and multiple outfit changes. After the concert it was really windy and due to my small size I was getting knocked to the ground by the wind. Crazy night for sure!

For a good time I … stack cups in my room, swim in natural bodies of water, listen to Chinese Democracy, make music with my friends.
