A passion for playing electric guitar, and the subsequent forming of a rock band, had him controversially leave high school—and home—before the full term of his studies was complete. An interest in Eastern philosophy and meditation developed in his early 20s. Becoming somewhat reclusive, between regular hours of meditation Jonathan delved into musical composition in a broad range of genres whilst remaining outside the conventional institutions of musical education. After a sojourn to India and a 3 year stay in an ashram in California, and having not expressed himself artistically during that austere time, he returned to Australia and began writing again—both music and literature. Jonathan teaches guitar, and has recorded several CDs of original music covering contemporary, eastern, and symphonic styles.
