Jonathan has been an active interdisciplinary practitioner and academic leader within Higher Education for nearly 20 years. Over the past 10 years, prompted by the radical, profound and systematic changes affecting Higher Education in a digital era, his innovative thinking and leadership has impacted curricula design, next generation learning spaces and cutting-edge educational technology initiatives.

He has been described as one of an early generation of artists responsible for the emergence of a new school of photography which blurs the boundaries between the still and moving image.
