We are all faced with major issues no matter what age we are. I've had my own personal struggles in my life and have been blessed to be in the position I am; a chance meeting and a healthy dose of being in the right place at the right time have allowed me to make a career out of my passion, skateboarding. I look back to the 2002 Gravity Games held in Cleveland, Ohio where my professional career started. I found myself thrust into the spotlight and traveling all over the world performing at venues of all kinds. Quickly I began to embrace the responsibility of being a role model and mentor, and realized that it was imperative that my journey with skateboarding have more purpose than just as entertainment. I found myself invited to speak at events across the country where I was able to encourage people to stay clear from drugs and alcohol and believe in themselves and their dreams. With this, my skateboard became my microphone and I was given the unique opportunity to have a positive influence on people of all ages. Being a professional athlete has its rewards but becoming a published author and speaker has given me the strongest sense of self worth and purpose.

As time went on, I developed my own platform, my own foundation. I use my own life story with my personal experiences and stories from people I’ve come across. I bring my message and speak globally at libraries, schools, camps, military bases, detention centers, high school commencements, churches, and wherever the opportunity arises.

Why do I make the effort? On a personal level, it gives me a sense of purpose, to give back, to be pro-active, to help others think positively while leading a drug free life. As it turns out, people from all walks of life attend and are given the opportunity to share their own stories as well. Everyone goes through tough times, and hearing how people have come through adversity can have a strong influence on an impressionable audience. I'm all about humanity and compassion, and helping people learn how to make better choices to firm up a strong future for themselves. I encourage people to find their passion and embrace their talents in order to achieve their dreams. The essence of my speaking is to motivate individuals to make good choices throughout their lives.

"Doug's program was wonderful. He was very professional, personable and deeply connected to the audience. He went above and beyond with his preparation and graciously stayed late to converse with the audience and answer questions.
I hope that we can schedule another program with Doug in the future."
- Kristie Donelson Ashland Public Library
