About

Jon Fortenbury is an Austin-based freelance writer and human being. He’s written for The Atlantic, USA Today, Huffington Post and a bunch of other namedrop-worthy places. He thinks stick bugs are a hilarious transition in evolution and is sincerely convinced he’ll marry Zooey Deschanel if he mentions her in enough writer bios.

More than all that, though, there are 5 things you really need to know about Jon upfront:

  1. He still listens to Bright Eyes religiously, despite being older than 19.
  2. He’s from Las Vegas, so what happens in Vegas, gets brought up at family reunions.
  3. He’s addicted to Nutella.
  4. He got published at age 10.
  5. He hates lists of 4 and will do whatever possible to avoid them.
