    In his first year in filmschool he co-wrote the feature length roadmovie The Road to Cadiz, that he directed with Shariff Korver the following summer and edited during the second year. The film premiered at the Dutch Film Festival, was selected for CPH:PIX in Kopenhagen, and was released in more then ten Dutch cinema's.
    After graduating from film school in 2011, Jonathan has made a number of short films, and has worked as a creative, copywriter and director foradvertising agency Pool Worldwide. At the moment he is developing several longer projects and while teaching storytelling at the Amsterdam Film School. Finally, it is interesting to mention that all his favourite vegetables start with the letter A.
