When Jon is not teaching undergraduate students how to create playful experiences – yes there really is a degree, he is working with teenagers to conserve the Scottish countryside as a Green Team volunteer. You will find him out camping, sawing, lopping, fire building and planting.
Jon was raised by a family of horticulturists, but strangely it was never something that interested him – until his first mid-life crisis. When he turned 40 he realised that he had lost something over the years, and he needed to reconnect with life and the earth. For him this is a spiritual journey – a search for himself and his personal relationship with the land.
