Tracy Jones

Tracy Jones is from "God's Waiting Room," better known as Florida, but by way of Tokyo, Japan, he’s a born again American, a writer, photographer, and a proud husband and father. His greatest thought came to him in a job interview when he answered a question with "people walked through my mind like a museum." While Tracy's answer excited the possible employer, surprisingly, Tracy didn't get the job. He’s written for Huffpost, Bandcamp, Cleaver Magazine, Hi-Fructose, MoCADA, and he produces The Microscopic Giant.
