Circe Wallace came up as a skate rat in Hippie Central, USA, where the values of the hippies are infused into your character through osmosis, but because of the post-’60s generational shift, you also see through a lot of the hippie excess. Basically that means Circe came of age with a don’t-take-shit attitude in her DNA.

As Senior Vice President of Action Sports at Wasserman Media Group, Circe’s one of the most prominent agents in the skate/snow world. And she’s still taking on new challenges.

We spoke with Circe as part of Chapter 51: Leaders. Tune in above as she explains that part of her success is due to her conscious choice to not buy into the bullshit.
