Giovanni Reda is the emcee for Esquire Network's reality series "Knife Fight."

A born and bred New Yorker, Giovanni Reda spent his early years in the midst of a gregarious Italian family in Brooklyn, where he first experienced his love of food, comedy and skateboarding… three things which would be the defining elements of his future professional success.

Reda's photography career began in 1995, where he would take the subway everyday from Brooklyn to shoot friends skateboarding around the streets of New York City and finish his day watching countless shows at CBGB's where bands like Agnostic Front and Murphy's Law performed.

His reputation for a unique eye and understanding of the sport grew and he began to shoot some the world's best skateboarders. Freelance opportunities with such international publications as Transworld Skateboarding, Thrasher Magazine and Skateboarder began to occur. By 1996, he was a senior photographer for Transworld, and an international name in the skating world.

In 1999 Reda shifted gears and became staff photographer for Zoo York Skateboards where such legends as professional skateboarder Harold Hunter had his first start. Upon completing his tenure at Zoo York, he became the photo editor of Big Brother Magazine. Today Reda averages about 100 pages of editorial content a year and is still a frequent contributor to Thrasher, Transworld Skateboarding Magazines, The skateboard Mag and Skateboarder.Reda's infectious humor and appealing personality earned him a weekly episodic video blog on the biggest skateboarding website, "Wednesdays with Reda" showcases his unique humor and quick wit as he travels the world with various professional skateboarders.Reda was asked to do voiceover work for Electronic Arts (EA) — One of the biggest video game developers in the world. Reda specifically worked on "Skate, Skate 2 and Skate 3" a skateboard game where he narrated its entirety and is a playable character in the game.

Reda is one of the most sought after photographers in the history of skateboarding. His success is a reflection of dedication, work ethic and most of all, passion for the sport and art of skateboarding.
