Developer Biography

Jonathan graduated from York University in 1985 with joint honours in Physics and Computer Science. In 1989 Jonathan co-founded Simis Limited and, as the technical director, guided its successful growth in the professional simulation training market and to its position as a leader in flight simulation video games. During this period, Jonathan designed and wrote a number of successful interactive entertainment titles.

In 1995, Jonathan lead the sale of Simis Limited to its principal customer in an operation that saw the effective merger of Domark, Simis, Eidos and Big Red to form the fully listed public company Eidos plc. Jonathan continued to head the Simis studio from 1996 until, in 1998, Jonathan and Ian Baverstock led a management buy out of the studio to form Kuju. Since then, Jonathan has taken the position of managing director and continues to directly oversee Kuju’s on-going growth.
