Born in London but raised in the Netherlands. He studied jazz guitar for quite some time after high school, but found his real passion within photography. Quickly Jonathan discovered he had a great feeling to films, ultimately choosing to make a living through this.
He started developing an eye for comedy by directing a very successful dutch comedy series before moving into advertising. His films can best be described as humorous and heavily reliant on beautiful art-direction, focusing mainly on making commercials, fiction, and photographs.
His work is well received by not only his audience but by his peers alike as can be seen in the amount of awards Jonathan gathered throughout his career, for instance a Golden and a Bronze Lion, three ADCN Awards, and various other European advertising organisations.
