Static IV Premiere at Tampa Theater

Saturday, May 10, 2014

Thanks to Josh Stewart for keeping the art and craft of skateboarding and how it's documented consistent with what made us all fall in lifelong love with it in the first place. I snapped a few chill cam shots throughout the night that started at Tampa Workspace and ended at the showing at Tampa Theater.

Nike SB Chronicles 2 Premiere in Tampa

Saturday, December 7, 2013

I had a nice responsible partying night at the Chronicles 2 Premiere that was a block from where I live in downtown Tampa. Someone should have given Donovon a mic while he heckled himself during his entire part from the back of the theater.

End Your Skateboarding Year by Giving Back and Getting a Good Time in Return

Sunday, October 6, 2013

If you're a pro or a company owner that can get your team to Houston, Texas next month on Saturday, November 16th, you need to make your plans now. Damian and the Make-A-Wish Foundation have been doing the annual Johnny Romano Make-A-Wish Jam for years there now raising money to help sick kids' wishes come true. I'll be hunkered down with my wife nursing a bun in the oven, so I'll miss this year. You however, need to get there for a great time while you help out with a great cause.

Street League and X Games Los Angeles

Monday, August 5, 2013

Last night, my wife Brittany and I flew to LA. After a late night landing and amazing airport pick-up by our friend Lanna with a beer and non-cocktail ready in the car for a pregnant Brittany, we went straight to bed to prepare for an early day of what I guess is work even though I don't have a job right now. Work being high fiving everyone, talking general bid'niss, figuring out my plans, sorting through opportunities, and just watching some skateboarding. When we were'nt skating or watching skating it was couples lurk through LA random spots. I've got a few photos from the weekend on site at Street League and the X Games, plus a cell phone edit from the whole thing.
