     Jonathan Michael Mercado, originally from San Jose, CA, now resides in San Francisco pursuing his BA in Liberal Studies and a Minor in Marketing at San Francisco State University. He is relatively new to the Philippine folk dance world, receiving most of his experience from SFSU's Pilipino Cultural Night (PCN) for the past three years. Meeting several members from BDC as a result of these PCNs, he decided to take his interest of Philippine folk dance and culture more seriously. Thus, he dedicated himself to Barangay Dance Company in the summer of 2010 and has since been seen dancing with the company at multiple events. He is also the former Public Relations coordinator (2009-2010) for the Pilipino American Collegiate Endeavor (PACE) at SFSU, which is one of the largest running Pilipino American organizations in the Bay Area, and is the Head Coordinator for the 2011-2012 academic year. Although his life is very busy, he believes that every opportunity is an experience that should be embraced and appreciated.
