Jonathan moved back to China in 2009 and was employed by Fortune Real Estate Group in Beijing as Design Director leading a twenty-people design management team before he immigrated to Canada in 2012. Prior to joining Thinkspace, Jonathan worked at IBI Group for three years and played a key role in the design of Gilmore Place, a ten-tower residential, office and retail development in Burnaby.
At Thinkspace, Jonathan has been involved in the renovation of several healthcare projects, including the BC Cancer Agency CT Scanner in Vancouver, the Dawson Creek and District Hospital Medical Device Reprocessing Department (MDRD), and the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) suite.
