Doritos Faceoff

Here is one of the entries for the Doritos Superbowl Commercial contest. This video was made by one of my best friends growing up, Mark Wallenwine. He taught me a lot about video and learned a lot about lighting from working with on a few projects in the past. He also helped me on filming one of my first skate videos.

Holiday Hubba Contest Promotion


Free Try Friday with James Amato

I'm trying to do more videos with the skatepark for promotion purposes and also to create a fun community and culture among the skaters that go to our park (First Glance Skatepark). A popular online website The Berrics, features daily videos of professional skateboarders. Now I don't want to try to copy everything they do, but I did take this idea from them, with a slight twist.

The first skateboarder to show up to our park, after he pays $5, we will give him a chance to win his $5 back and skate for free the rest of the night. All he has to do is land the trick we choose for him, first try. If he doesn't make it, we still give him a chance to redeem himself with more tries but doesn't receive his $5 back. This was our first "Free Try Friday".

Kenmore Connection


I wrote an article for a free newspaper, Kenmore Connection, about First Glance Skatepark. When I opened the newspaper I was amused to see that the newspaper company mistakenly put Noelle Beck, the over dearer of the ministries at First Glance, as the author. However it is still cool to see my photo and an article I wrote published in a newspaper.

Tyler Blackert - FS Flip at FG Skatepark


Tyler Blackert skate a lot like myself but better. I'll be thinking of a trick I want to try and then later see him try the same thing. His kickflips and fs flips are probably some of his best looking tricks and are always high.

Jordan Maselli - Airwalk at FG Skatepark

Jordan Maselli does airwalks better then anyone I've ever seen. He extends his legs out super far while doing 2-3 kicks. Most airwalks I see have very lazy extension and are only one kick.
