Originally hailing from the Green Mountains of Vermont, Jonah found a deep love for music as a toddler and as he grew older this passion only grew stronger. Jonah is completely self taught on keyboards/piano and has relied on his ear and his emotion as a way of creating, composing, and generating his musical creations over the years. At age 19, Jonah auditioned for what was to become Pyramaze, the highly acclaimed international Progressive Metal band that he remains a member of to this day.
In addition to a rich and full career with Pyramaze, Jonah has performed on many albums and projects over the years, collaborating with the likes of Dave Ellefson (Megadeth), James Murphy (Testament, Death), Matt Barlow (Iced Earth), Bill Hudson (Trans-Siberian Orchestra), and Grammy nominated producer Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Amaranthe). 2016-17 have been big years for Jonah, resulting in multiple releases on major labels worldwide including AFM Records, Universal, and Inner Wound Recordings. Also in 2016, Jonah formed the metal duo Sentinels with legendary vocalist Matt Barlow, and in September of 2017 joined Australian progressive metal band Teramaze. On top of all his work in the metal/rock worlds, Jonah is also an accomplished composer of independent films, video game soundtracks, sports team anthems, and epic trailer music.

“For us at Impawsible Games it was a hard task finding someone who could capture the atmosphere and mood of our Games. With Jonah we found the perfect fit, he immediately understood where we were going and transcended it into beautiful music. It became much more then we could imagine and we are very thankful for his contribution.”
NICO PLÖTZ, PRESIDENT OF IMPAWSIBLE GAMES
“Jonah’s keyboard playing and improvisational skills are in a league of their own. I’ve had the pleasure of working with him on several projects over the years, both producing and mixing his various endeavors. He should be anyone’s go to for epic/cinematic keyboard work.”
