Roger Davis

Bboy City’s origins date back to a time where gangs were prevalent in Austin. Working at the Austin Montopolis Recreation center, Roger Davis met Romeo Navarro where together they began mentoring locals and took at-risk-youth off the streets, transforming neighborhoods from centers of gang activity to places where some of the best breaking athletes were created.

 

Roger now spends his time as a firefighter at the Austin Fire Department and organizes for Bboy City and Hope 4 Hip Hop
