From his Love Park days in Philly to his current role as team manager of Bones Bearings, Laird's always been known as one of skateboarding's nicest personalities. He's also a guy who can give you an unwanted nickname that will stick for decades. Laird's currently living in Los Angeles, but flew to NYC to display some images he shot while touring India.
