In 2012, Jones co-founded Reno Wired, a local Reno event that rebrands a nonprofit in 24 hours. He has spoken at Wordcamp and the University of Nevada, Reno on subjects relating to WordPress, Drupal, and designing for the web and content management systems. Jones has also won an AMA (American Marketing Association) ACE award, and took first place at the National AAF (American Advertising Federation) Conference for his work on the Reno-Sparks Gospel Mission.
