Student Activities, Disability Services, and Counseling co-present this campus visit with Brandon Novak, who will discuss his journey from skateboarding fame and acting in the Jackass films, through the depths of heroin addiction and his road to recovery, to his life today as author and speaker.
“Skateboarding used to be my life. When I was 14, I was discovered by Bucky Lasek and Tony Hawk, and was on my way to turning pro. I toured the country, signed autographs, and had my photo in all the skate magazines. Then I got hooked on heroin and threw it all away.”
Novak’s talk at Brookdale is free and open to all. Warning: may contain graphic language and content. For additional information, contact Student Life & Activities at 732-224-2788 or email email@example.com
