An early hobby for Jonathan was in Motorsport but this was only brief and not exactly distinguished. He has however maintained his interest in anything mechanical and has a collection of exhibition Classic vehicles.
Having trained a working cocker spaniel sniffer dog some years ago, Jonathan is often found enjoying country walks with this companion, Benson and other family members.
Jonathan has worked since leaving school in various departments engaged in investigative work with, for and on behalf of statutory authorities.
He considers himself somewhat retired but still manages to engage in associated activities and in recent years has been involved in the drug and alcohol screening industry.
