If you’ve ever been to a SLUG-sponsored event, you’ve seen our marketing minions handing out free mags and convincing you to buy our cool merch. Espo, however, has gone above and beyond his SLUG tabling duties on a number of occasions. From constructing the trophies for the SLUG Games: Shred the Park After Dark this year, to taking on the role of Craft Lake City Stage Manager at last year’s festival, Espo’s the kind of guy you want wearing your band shirt. If you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Espo at an event, chances are you’ve seen him on the road, riding his black-and-gold fixie. Just like everything else he does in life, he takes his passion for bicycling to the next level by riding through every season and attempting dare-devil tricks at the skate park. Next time you see him, ask him about the gnarly scar on his forehead.
