John is Empire’s resident internet superstar due to his popular blog, Prolly is not Probably. Before that he was just a good old boy who never meant no harm from Wilmington, North Carolina who landed in New York in 2004 as an Architectural Intern. Before getting here he surfed and skated, moving on to mountain biking in college. However, New York required a faster and cheaper bike, leading to his first fixed gear.

John is a central figure in the New York trick riding scene thanks to his weekly meet-up, Peel Sessions. That’s the only night he knows he will be excused from his responsibilities of loyal boy friend, dog owner, and architectural intern. John is excited about Empire and opportunities to meet and ride with people from around the world, push it to the limit, ride, relax, and get PITTED.
