I am raising money to open my own skateboard shop. I have always dreamed of it and after I lost my job during the pandemic I am trying to get back on my feet in a positive spin for something and those I love dearly.
I am a single father to 3 wonderful children. I was in Emergency Medical Services for over 18 years and am looking for a change after always getting the short straw when I worked for someone else. Skateboarding was my first love and now that all of my kids skateboard too, it seems a better time than ever to follow my dream of opening my own skateboard shop (and eventually maybe bring in snowboards too). My goal is set a little high, because I also want to pick a location that I can have a mini-ramp and skate obstacles in (since I am in the greater Chicago region and have winter to deal with). I have the name for the shop and have been working on title art as well for the shop. I ultimately am hoping to have my kids working/running the shop with me too. Thank you for checking out our page/story!
