John started rolling around on skateboard back in '96–'97, but didn’t get his first real board (a Tony Hawk Birdhouse) until 2000—thanks to THPS. Like many others his love for skateboarding was solidified at that moment and he’s never looked back. His passion for skateboarding and quality filming has left us many classic Texas skateboarding videos, turned his friends into household names, and has forever enriched our skateboard scene.
