The man behind Simple Classic Living is Jonathan Baker.  A lover of all things food, culture and entertainment, Baker is a classic renaissance man with a colorful background. He has fronted a rock ‘n’ roll outfit that opened for Weezer, written for SPIN and thrown parties for Phoenix. He’s been a food and lifestyle contributor on Fox and CBS,  served as the Editor for the Masters Tournament website (masters.com), and is on the board of the Atlanta Film Festival. Having been recognized as one of the most stylish men in Atlanta (by glossy mag, The Atlantan), his three years as the Atlanta Editor of Citysearch allowed Baker to not only cover Atlanta, but become an optimistic face and voice of the city. He is currently a producer (and occasional on-camera talent) for Trends With Benefits, on TBS.

He hopes that Simple Classic Living not only provides a quick and easy guide to a tasteful lifestyle, but helps promote and restore Greatest Generation-style guidelines to modern society.
