My name is AJ Kohn and I am a life long skateboarder,industrial designer, community activist and teacher.
The picture you see above is when I am in my favorite element, teaching and engaging youth through skateboarding. Skateboarding has been a major part of my life since I was 10 yrs. old and it has allowed me opportunities I never would have been able to do without it such as travel the world, meet some amazing people, overcome personal obstacles and learn about life in general.
I have seen and experienced what skateboarding mind can do when focused and positive. The same traits that make someone a great skateboarder can easily be translated into any other activity as I teach patience, show rewards of hard work, dedication and community to all of my students. I serve over 2,000 students each summer in Philadelphia alone, many of whom are new to skateboarding.
My function as a professional is to keep the stoke going wherever I go, to as many people as possible and that's what I aim to do everyday!
When I am not skateboarding or teaching skateboarding you can find me traveling the East Coast performing in edutainment assemblies teaching STEAM education, Health and Wellness, Anti bullying, Character Development and other positive messages through various mediums. Currently performing in over 500 shows per year. Other than that I love to hang out with my wife, friends and my Shiba Inu.
Thanks for stopping by and for your support!
