Hey its Shop owner, deck designer, microphone checka, turntable wrecka: Mr. International AKA Alan Lee.
I started skating back in 1988 with my first Nash pool deck. Was the only kid skating in my ghetto growing up. Often yelled at for "trying to be white", since back then skateboarding was mostly a "white" sport in the north east of the USA. I kept at it, while playing guitar and rockin out in Pittsburgh, PA. Then in 1994 i got sponsored at 14yrs old, with Army Of Skaters. Skated for them for 2yrs and then their company went under.
I skated off and on, mainly for transportation over the next 15 or so years. and finally getting back into it heavily in the last year.
I moved to Chicago, and now run a skate shop along side of Smarti and Frenchie.
Check out the webstore, and our storefront when it opens, and REMEMBER
