About the Owner:
Jonathan Fouch has spent the greater part of his 10-year career helping families build their legacy through technology. Prior to founding History Creation, Jonathan was the Chief Technology Officer of Shea Aiello law firm, one of the biggest estate planning law firms in the State of Michigan. There Jonathan created an online tool used by thousands of clients to complete their estate planning documents online. During his tenure at the firm, Jonathan also digitized thousands of paper files, designed a digital archive, developed software and websites, and managed a team of attorneys and paralegals.
Prior to joining the firm in 2011, Jonathan co-founded Excellence for Detroit, a nonprofit organization that helped hundreds of high school students in Detroit prepare for college success. Jonathan’s tenure at Excellence for Detroit included curriculum development, teaching, and fundraising. In total, the organization helped Detroit youth receive over a half-million dollars in scholarship money.
Jonathan is a lifelong historian. He wrote his first history as far back as the 5th grade, detailing the rise and fall of a secret playground club he had founded with his school friends. He graduated magna cum laude from Oakland University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in History and German Language and Literature. Using research he completed at the German Federal Archives in Berlin, his senior thesis examined the effect that propaganda had on German public opinion during Nazi rule. The resulting paper won a regional research award in 2011.
Outside of work, Jonathan revels in his role of official storyteller for his group of longtime friends. He enjoys traveling, whether it’s to Dublin or Vienna, or to small towns throughout the Midwest. He also is an avid consumer of gadgets, especially anything made by Apple. He lives in Farmington Hills, Michigan, just outside of Detroit.
