Tom Hyser has been living his life by design since the before high school. He has always had a vision for what he wants and has lived an amazing life pursuing this vision. Its been quite a ride reflecting back on how many different ways and places Tom has done this. It all first started right after graduation when 4 crazy kids took off to California for an epic summer of adventure I will never forget. But Tom had a plan, even back then, that plan saw him become a pro skater. Which took him to Seattle to design in-line skates for K2. Then, coming back home to GA, he started a dot.com company at a time when few had done so. After growing that brand and establishing a skate community in the Southeast, he then realized his dream of working for Rollerblade growing both the industry he helped establish and creating a culture along the way. Now back from a stint in New England that saw him crystalize his role of father and husband, He and Erin have taken the next step in realizing their dreams of a lifestyle by design. For them, That’s now the pro mountain biker lifestyle which is exactly what both their kids are well on their way to becoming. Hope you enjoy my conversation with the always-entertaining Tom Hyser.
