Born and raised in Germany, Jonathan has been drawn to nature since early childhood. He has been working and studying in Germany, Norway, Canada, Chile, and Scotland and always devoted a lot of time to traveling, but since 2004 Svalbard has been his most permanent home-base.
Jonathan has a masters degree in physical geography and been taking university education in nature management and philosophy as well. He takes a genuine interest in many areas of contemporary and historical issues, cultural life, and our relationship to nature, and he likes an active lifestyle including skiing, climbing, kayaking/canoeing, hiking, and more.
Jonathan is certified Svalbard Guide and most likely to be met on our snowmobile safaris.
