Jonas is a self-proclaimed galoot who aspires to one day also be dashing. He often does strange things just to make sure he is still is a galoot. He greatly enjoys a number of things including wit, board games, baseball, stimulating conversation, and Camp Phillip in Wautoma, WI. He created this publication to write whatever he wants and because he (perhaps misguidedly) thinks that the world wants tips on how to become more like him.
