Meet Preston Pollard

Preston Pollard is a man on the move.

I became aware of Preston because his admittedly handsome mug is featured on the cover of photographer Brian Adams’ book “I Am Alaskan” and he has connections to Joel’s Place, a skate park and youth center here in Fairbanks, so I started checking into his story.

It didn’t take long to realize that Preston is a busy, busy man. In addition to modeling, hosting on Oprah’s OWN network, and being a professional skateboarder, Preston spends a great deal of time traveling the world as a motivational speaker.

Preston is my kind of people because he wants to inspire young people to reach beyond what they think is possible and build lives that matter. His skills with a skateboard give him an opportunity to offer his message of hope to kids who share his love for gliding through the world on 4 small wheels.

I think Preston is pretty wonderful and I think you just might agree…
