The San Francisco Chronicle describes musician Tommy Guerrero’s work as “a soul, jazz, psychedelic fusion that feels like a soundtrack for walking the streets of San Francisco.” That’s appropriate, since Guerrero first made a name for himself navigating the city’s avenues and alleys as a pioneering pro skateboarder. We’ll talk to Guerrero about his journey from high school dropout and teen skate god to entrepreneur and indie music icon. He joins us as part of our “First Person” series featuring the leaders, innovators and other individuals who make the Bay Area Unique.
