From there he performed in the German productions of Dance of the Vampires, Cats, another production of 42nd Street, and was Dance Captain for the Stuttgart production of Mamma Mia!

When he turned 30 he traded in his dancing shoes for a microphone transitioning into the voice over industry. Jonathan has voiced thousands of business narrations, e-learning modules, and commercials for clients like Red Bull, Coca-Cola, Facebook, Google, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Bosch, Philips, WWF, and Unicef.
