About Me

John Gonzalez is a former educator turned writer, currently trying to combine his passions for writing and playing board games into something worth reading.

He’s the creator and co-hosts of Board in East L.A., a weekly, live-streaming show in which he and Ruel Gaviola try to convey some of our favorite aspects of tabletop gaming: friendly competition, having fun, and getting to know your table mates.

John is a proud contributor to The Five By podcast, a bi-weekly board game review podcast that features five reviews, by five different contributors in about twenty-five minutes.


Let’s work together.
