Jonathan graduated from The Art Institute of Burnaby's 2 year animation course in 2004, and was subsequently hired as a 3D Artist. His tenure since then has been exclusively with Next Level Games, working primarily as a character artist on top Nintendo franchises such as the Mario Strikers series, Punch Out!! Wii, and Luigi's Mansion 2. In addition, he's contributed to a number of other licensed titles including Spiderman, Transformers, Ghost Recon, and the recent Captain America: Super Soldier.
His role at VFS is that of an art mentor whose goal is to provide students with feedback, encouraging the most aesthetically pleasing results, maintaining effective game design philosophies without compromising the team's original vision.
Jonathan enjoys playing as many games as humanly possible, and considers himself a connoisseur of a variety of genres. He favours survival horror titles, which explains why he always carries an eagle crest, sapphire, and unicorn medallion along with his pass card.
