Blog Author - John Adams
Name: John Manley Adams
Location: The Village Of Elk Grove Village (no shit), IL
In a word, John is suburban. He was recently described as looking like a really old guy in young guy skin. He spends most of his time in a cubicle wishing for a window desk and regularly uses the word “shoot” to describe the act of sending an email. He started rollerblading the same year Mississippi ratified the 13th amendment, which abolished slavery (again, no shit). More recently he worked as co-director on the award-winning documentary “Jack Be Nimble.”
John will be using his ONE Blade Blog to discuss his approach and experience trying to film his first section in seven years and his viewpoint on the challenges of adult life as a blader, such as anxiety over the possibility of bleeding through his khakis and hoping the client whose hand he just shook did not notice his fall-induced stigmata.
