About Jonathan

I’m a digital editor, arts journalist, Community Manager and author, with 15 years experience working on high profile multimedia projects for organisations such as Johnston Press, the BBCSTV, Creative ScotlandThe Guardian, VisitScotland and the Scottish Government.

I’m currently the Content and Social Media Executive at CodeClan, Scotland’s first accredited skills academy here in Edinburgh.

Until recently I was UK Community Manager for Johnston Press’ WOW247, a fast-growing arts and entertainment website. Responsibilities included growing and developing WOW247’s team of bloggers and planning, commissioning and producing a variety of original digital content.

In 2015 I published my first book, a history of the Tremors film franchise – the two year project involved interviewing 55+ cast and crew. Starburst Magazine called it “informative, entertaining and, above all, a joy to read.”

Previously, I was a freelance digital editor and arts journalist, working with clients to help them communicate in print and online using social media, video and audio.

Projects included PR and online community management for Scotland’s mobile cinema, Screen Machine; writing website content for a leading Scottish university; and producing features for BBC Radio Scotland’s Movie Cafe/Culture Studio.

I run online film magazine reelscotland.com, named one of The List’s Best Scottish websites in 2011, and from 2009 to 2014 I wrote a weekly film column for the Edinburgh Evening News,
