Jon is a Danish/Australian screenwriter excelling at character-driven comedy and action adventure. He has written on shows such as Taffy for Boomerang, Monster Loving Maniacs for SuperRTL, 100% Wolf: Legend of the Moonstone for ABC, and Kitty Is Not A Cat for Seven.
Jon’s animated series concept Karyn Splitter: Alien Sitter won the Disney Channel Prize at MIFA Pitches in Annecy. He co-created BedHead, a live-action short-form comedy series which aired on ABC in Australia for which he received an Australian Writer’s Guild nomination.
Jon is currently developing a family feature with Tumblehead in Denmark as well as an adventure comedy series with Daily Madness in Ireland.
Having recently returned to writing live-action Jon is developing a comedy series for 8+ in this space.
Jon decided to become a writer at the tender age of six after his parents laughed heartily for several minutes at a short story he had written. The story was not a comedy.
More often than not Jon channels his experience as a Dane living abroad into incredibly serious projects usually featuring roguish monsters, rebellious aliens, or some sort of out of control ice cream-shooting robot threatening to destroy the entire world because it feels like it doesn’t fit in.
