Jack has been following Green Day since "American Idiot" came out in 2004. A visitor to GDA since 2009, Jack joined the team in March of 2012 to help out with news. He enjoys playing guitar, and he eats/sleeps/breathes music! Jack has seen Green Day live only once (Omaha, Nebraska is NOT the best place to be for Green Day-related action). He loves meeting new people through GDA and GDC, and hopes to continue talking with Green Day fans from around the world!
