With over 30 years professional experience he has worked with many Australian and international artists, venues and festivals in delivering high quality technical production values to a huge variety of performance styles. Jon has spent his career adapting to and furthering the application of the extraordinary technological advances of the late 20th and early 21st century. He is passionate about 'the Stage' in all its forms, and the preservation of the 'Stagecraft' that is our cultural legacy.
