After being Head-of-House and a multi-sports captain at school, Jonathan decided to take a step away from the education system to join the army. Determined to develop an admirable career, Jonathan devoted his teenage years to the army and was awarded the Sword of Honour at The Royal Military Academy. Developing a respected reputation throughout the industry, he was set to build a remarkable career working his way up through the ranks before his life-changing brain injury took place. Experiencing years’ worth of hospitalisations and challenges both physically and neurologically, he began to prioritise rehabilitation and recovery. Determined to not let his disability get in the way of achieving his goals, Jonathan secured a place at Salford University and studied to gain a Media and Performance degree.
Passionate to implement positive change throughout the community, Jonathan began to focus his career on mental health rehabilitation and started working with several brain injury charities in 2001. Keen to share his incredible journey to recovery, he began delivering informative presentations and workshops at universities and other organisations. From what it is like to live with a brain injury to how to remain positive, Jonathan is admired greatly for supporting others throughout the community who may be struggling similarly to how he was at his darkest times. Now extremely grateful for the diverse yet exciting life that his brain injury has led him along, Jonathan has become a must-see speaker for audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
