Jonathan Terhaar

Abandoned by his family as an infant, Jonathan was left on a doorstep in Romania and raised by other orphans on a steady diet of moldy bread and aurolac. He found his way to the states in the mid-80s and founded several underground publications such as Sports Illustrated and People magazine at the age of 11. Jonathan now lives in Austin with a bunch of other hip, white people.
