Brief Bio:

Jon began playing guitar at the age of 11, taking professional lessons for
six years. He started to write music at the age of 18, and helped form his
first band, The Lost Cause shortly afterward. Jon was TLC's lead guitarist.

Jon co-founded Unforsaken in 1993 with Thomas
Wilson (vocals, drums) and Sheldon D'Costa (bass).

In the mid 1990s, Jon began teaching guitar at Bud's Music Centre in Peterborough, Ontario,
where he remains as guitar teacher and management staff to this day. He also owned and
operated Spruce Winds Recording Studio in Millbrook, Ontario for several years.

During a period in which Unforsaken was disbanded, Jon offered his musical services to Oshawa,
Ontario based band Rise, as well as to other bands in need of musicians. In more recent years,
he has been having a lot of fun playing guitar in and co-leading his church worship team.

In addition to music, Jon has an avid interest in art, which has led him to design many band
logos and album covers, including Unforsaken, Incarnate, Rise, Endless Funeral, and more.
