Stranger 42/100 - Desi

Stranger 42/100 - Desi

 

Our next stranger stood out from the crowd of bustling people returning to work from lunch. I caught him while he was hanging out before going to work.

 

Meet Desi.

 

Desi has been skateboarding for eleven years. “I hang out with a bunch of locals in the neighborhood. There’s a bunch of skaters in Charlotte.”

 

What advice would you give to your younger self? “Listen to my parents. I kind of flew my own way.”

 

What would they have told you? “Stay in school. Go to college.”

 

What are your goals? “Right now, I’ve got this big old skateboarding thing going on. Hopefully I’ll be taking off with that.”

 

Are you trying to get sponsored? “I’ve been courting them for about four years. I’ve got to send more videos out.”

 

Thank you Desi for being part of the 100 Strangers Project. Best of luck in getting sponsored.

 

Technical Notes: It was a bright, sunny day and we found a shaded area to take this natural light portrait.
