Scamming Your Way to a Better Community

BY JOSH SCHEUERMAN
@ VOL 10 ON OCT 14, 2013

Josh Scheuerman began his career by scamming his way into concerts by posing as photographer. Yet what he was really after was a way to connect with a community he associated with. Those early years led to work at SLUG magazine, which led to Josh publishing his own skate and snowboarding magazines. His art passion led him to start a local art adoption program. Josh's desire to connect with and improve his community has driven much of his life and his selfless actions improve the lives around him and the larger community.
