David Garofalo has been a cigar smoker and active in a cigar business for over 25 years. He is the owner, founder and President of Two Guys Smoke Shop in New Hampshire. There are 3 store locations, which are in Salem, Nashua, and Seabrook.
Two Guys Smoke Shop is arguably the highest volume independently owned cigar retailer in the world!

David sits on the Board of Directors of the (IPCPR) International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers, a member of the (TAA) Tobacconist Association of America, (NATO) National Association of Tobacco Outlets, a founding member of (CANH) Cigar Association of New Hampshire and is a proud member of the (CRA) Cigar Rights of America.

David owns and operates a mail order catalogue division of Two Guys at www.2GuysCigars.com for over 20 years and is considered by many as an ultimate cigar expert in the trade. David’s love and passion for cigars, keen palate, and open personality makes him a perfect candidate for The Cigar Authority.

Mr. JonathanMr. Jonathan was a freshman and needed some spending money. He found a job as a floor guard at the local roller rink. The DJ called in sick and like a scene from a cheesy 80’s movie the manager pulled him out and threw him head first into the DJ booth with less than a thirty second tutorial on how things worked. Mr. Jonathan was hooked. After two months, the private party business was born. In less than one year, Jonathan worked his way up to the top spot.

Years later, he branched out on his own, assuming the moniker of “Mr. Jonathan”. Fast forward to today: www.MrJonathanIsMyDJ.com is now an established music, M.C., and event production service.
