Jonathan was hooked on videogames ever since his father brought home their first personal computer to the household. As he dove deeper into music creation, a long time wish to work in the Games Industry grew stronger.
At the age of 16, being a huge Command & Conquer fan, he contacted FRANK KLEPACKI, composer at Westwood Studios at the time, who further acknowledged Jonathan’s potential to realize his dream, by then taking him on as his apprentice, encouraging him to pursue the goal of becoming an industry professional.
In 2007 Jonathan’s music for his first videogame project HAVEN was performed live by the Metropole Orchestra and Pa’dam choir. After having worked at Coded Illusions, Jonathan worked with Playlogic on titles such as EYEPET MOVE EDITION and FAIRYTALE FIGHTS, which resulted in earning him a DUTCH GAME AWARD in 2010.
Since he started as a fully independent composer in 2010, Jonathan has worked on multiple titles such as SPEEDRUNNER HD, FISHAO, the ADAM’S VENTURE TRILOGY and KICK & FENNICK.
