About

Hunter Gardner is a culture geek who loves finding out exactly what makes cities and communities tick. Easily bored, his interests vary from comedy to music to writing. He became a Grit blogger because he loves telling stories (usually true ones) about those things. In his free time, Hunter can be found around town telling jokes. In your free time, you can go see him tell those jokes. Also, the shirt pictured on the left was his favorite shirt and he believes it may have been stolen. If you know the whereabouts of said shirt, please contact him immediately.
