Playing the original Adventure game on a TRS-80 sparked Jonathan's interest in information technology. Soon he was coding his own interactive stories and discovering the world of hypertext and the world wide web. Jonathan achieved a Batchelor of Engineering (Electrical) with a special interest in artificial intelligence, and later a Master of Communications. He spent 12 years in the telecommunications sector working in project management and business analysis before moving into the start-up world and web/mobile development.
Jonathan is a Senior Developer at Catalyst (Christchurch, New Zealand) and has worked with Drupal since v4.6, developing web sites for government, corporates, small business, and non-profits. Islandora projects include Archives Central (https://archivescentral.org.nz), canterburystories.nz, and the University of Canterbury QuakeStudies archive (https://quakestudies.canterbury.ac.nz/). His other interests include linked data, craft beer, and outdoor adventures.
