acting

Having trained in acting at drama school Jonathan began creating theatre primarily to create opportunities and roles for himself to really be challenged by. His experience of working with a top London agent as a commercial actor was unfulfilling and by creating new opportunities with Ikebana Performance and with PLUNGE BOOM Jonathan has performed all over the world. Getting ditched by an agent was the most freeing and empowering experience. Agents are nice people, the commercial system they operate within is best avoided though. Not allot of love in it...

 

Even though Jonathan's career has moved in so many directions he has always remained an actor who moonlights as allot of other things.
