Gallegos's Gadgets

Staff Favorites: Jonathan Gallegos

The eighth installment of our Staff Favorites series features Mr. Jonathan Gallegos. Jonathan has been described as a "strange bird" among the GP crew -- though we mean it in the most affectionate sense. He certainly has an eclectic skill set: a Masters Degree in taxation paved the way for his full-time job as a tax accountant, but before all that this numbers man also figured out how to deftly craft copy, all the while bussing tables, running a "debt-laden" eBay store and toweling off tennis pros. His passions run wide and deep. Photography, cars, sports, arguing the finer points of Shiner Bock and his other favorite beers -- none are spared his attention. All of these things are firmly rooted in his sometimes obscene, always diabolically funny sense of humor. He might not always be entirely tasteful, but he's got a damn good taste in gear.
