Jones was born in 1977 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and grew up in central Massachusetts. His family collected computers, a hobby initiated by his father, Frank, who was a software engineer. This influenced Jones a lot, so much that later he would draw inspiration for his future style of art and design.


Jones began his career in animation in the late of 90's. He first made comics, followed by a series of loosely drawn minis. He studied in Boston at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, where under the name of "Paper Radio" met and worked with fellow artist Christopher Forgues. In 2000, he founded the collective Paper Rad, with the artist Jacob Ciocci and his sister Jessica Ciocci.
