THE MAN UP NORTH
This is Jay's fourth year celebrating Christmas with Jaunito Bandito and his awesome mustache. During the day Jay is a semi-responsible adult working at Orbital ATK. When not at work Jay enjoys spending time with his wife chasing solar eclipses and looking at the stars. He also enjoys really long road trips with all his children crammed in the back of his super-cool minivan.
To my incredible family who keep me laughing, keep me young, and understand the importance of Sunday afternoon naps.
