Jonathan was born in Montreal, Quebec, making him the first international reviewer writing for GameCritics.com. Although French-Canadian of origin, his exposure to the english language and culture came very early on in his life. Even at a young age, he preferred his cartoons in english rather than watching them translated in french. It was during that time that Jonathan developed an affinity for videogames. It all began with a game called Super Mario Brothers on a mysterious machine known as a "Nintendo". It took a few years before his parents finally budged and bought him the system but this first step was enough to trigger a fondness of games that still hasn't changed today.
After finishing high school, Jonathan made a bold move by not only tackling sciences, but also leaving the french education system behind to study in english. Even though he realized fairly quickly that sciences were a dead end for him, studying in his second language proved to be quite the opposite. He then transferred into Liberal Arts at Vanier College, from which he recently graduated. The fall of 2002 will mark a new beginning for him as he will commence his first semester at l'Université de Montréal.
Jonathan isn't quite sure yet as to what he plans to do later on. For now, he is content with taking it one day at a time and sees the chance to write for GameCritics.com as an opportunity to combine his passion for both video games and writing.
