Jon is an award winning writer, director and the Creative Director of Unlimited with whom he creates new stories and adventures for live performance and increasingly with a ‘cross platform curiosity’. Unlimited’s current project is a future sci-fact space adventure “to inspire children about science” that appears as a major stage show, an adventure in schools played through bespoke (and secure) social networking sites and as a game for families to play in public spaces and at festivals. The project has been nominated for the Sir Arthur Clarke Award for Achievement in Space Education & Outreach and versions for different platforms/mediums are currently in development. Jon is an associate of the Quantum Information Group at the University of Leeds and the father of two small boys.
John was a speaker in the “Sell Out” session at the 2011 Conference
