Your dad, Fausto Vitello, was influential in shaping the skateboarding industry when he founded Thrasher magazine. What was it like growing up around a bunch of skaters?
"It was a really fun upbringing, yet my dad instilled a hard work ethic to my brother and me. He came from Argentina speaking no English, and he and his partner Eric met and developed Independent trucks. It was a lot of hard work. When I started working here, I had to learn a bit of everything and pay my dues. The people in the office have been here for years, and many of the skateboarders I know have watched me grow up. I’m thankful for everyone who has always been loyal to my family."
What does a normal day at Thrasher look like?
"There's never a normal day at Thrasher, that’s for sure! I plan all of our events from video premieres to parties we sponsor, and I see them through from beginning to end — I work closely with Dave Sypniewski, the other half of our team. Thrasher always has events going on, from S.F. to L.A. to NYC and beyond. There are non-stop phone calls and emails throughout the day and night, and a lot of traveling. We’re a small, close-knit staff and we all work together on all aspects of the magazine."
