Developer Biography

Jonathan has been in the games industry since 1995 when his first title Radix: Beyond the Void was released through Epic Megagames.

Jonathan is also well known for writing one of the first and most successful free Quake editors, Thred, which has been used on numerous commercial titles. Once Thred was released, Jonathan was recruited by Chris Taylor to join Cavedog Entertainment, where he worked as lead graphics programmer on the landmark real-time strategy game Total Annihilation. He then worked as lead programmer for 2 years on the highly anticipated Amen: The Awakening.

After leaving Cavedog, Jonathan helped found Adrenium as the Graphics Architect where he has developed graphics systems for Xbox, DirectX, OpenGL, Gamecube, and PS2.
