Jon is a Danish/Australian screenwriter excelling at character-driven comedy and action adventure. He has written on shows such as Monster Loving Maniacs for CBBC, Taffy for Boomerang, 100% Wolf: Legend of the Moonstone for ABC, and Kitty Is Not A Cat for Disney.
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 Lead Writer on an upcoming animated series for German studio Akkord Films and is developing projects for Distillery Films and Daily Madness.
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 world because it feels like it doesn’t fit in.
