September 6th, 2022

Jenae is a kennel tech at a Veterinary Hospital here in Boulder. She cares for all types of animals – taking them out for walks, cleaning them, feeding them etc. She started working there this past January. When I asked her why she took the job, she told me that it was because of her love for animals. Jenae grew up on a farm here in Colorado and has been surrounded by animals her whole life. Currently, she’s living in Boulder and studying at CU, but her current apartment doesn’t allow tenants to have pets. Thankfully, she gets her fix at work.  Read More

Jack and his friends were enjoying a nice day outside. They’re all students at CU and told me that they like to get away from campus sometimes.

Jack and his friends are thankful to be so close to landscapes as beautiful as the one pictured. Boulder is a great place for people to get outside and take advantage of the nice weather. This day in particular was celebrated with food and music in a beautiful setting.  Read More

Nick is in love with the ski and snowboard industry. Ever since moving to Boulder a couple of years ago, he has loved the laid back culture and positive vibes that surround the ski and snowboard world. When Nick was hired by Deviation, a Denver based ski and snowboard company, he told me he couldn’t have been happier. He became a sales rep for them and was delighted with the pleasure of representing Deviation at the 2017 SIA Snow Show. Nick obviously showed a passion for the sport and a bond with those who practice it. He was more than happy to tell me all about Deviation’s missions... Read More

Just by looks, you might never guess that Mark and Drew are monks in training. The two monks-to-be came to Boulder to spread their ideals far and wide. Both of the young men practice Bhakti Yoga, a sort of spiritual subdivision of the Hindu religion. As soon as I saw them, I recognized the welcoming look in their eyes. I must say, they were the happiest people I’d talked to all day. They were genuinely excited to share and talk with new people. That’s something you don’t see too often anymore. In the age of the smartphone, it was nice to meet two excited, genuine, young men. Good luck with... Read More

I caught Jake at a good time. Not only a momentarily good time, but a good time in life. He says he’s really happy with where he is at right now. His biggest worries at the moment are finding a part time job and keeping up with his schoolwork. On his off days he enjoys playing guitar and taking on whatever challenge life throws his way. Jake hopes his future is filled with lots of travel and new cultural experiences. One day he hopes to relearn Spanish and live in Mexico for a couple of months. Then he hopes to fit New Zealand in sometime too. But for now, Jake said, “Boulder is doing me just... Read More

I’m a very engaged father, my kids mean the world to me—and they’re very different. My son is like a little version of me and my daughter is a firecracker, full of vigor. My son got involved in a junior target shooting program here in Boulder. He really enjoyed it but it was quickly getting expensive so to help subsidize it, I founded Arete Arms. We specialize in selling the top 1% of precision fire arms and optics with concierge service, selection and support. I love to tell anyone about the true sporting behind target shooting. Shooting a pie sized target, a mile away is a big math problem... Read More

Jesse is originally from Boulder, but doesn’t reside in the city anymore. He does come back to visit though. I talked with him at the SIA snow show where he was representing Soulmotion – a snowboarding and surfing company. Jesse was playing the didgeridoo and wowing all the industry reps that walked by. He started to attract an audience in no time, and was even teaching people how to play. He taught breathing techniques and offered his own tips and tricks, all while still entertaining a crowd. Who knows, maybe he’ll spend a day on Pearl Street next time he’s in Boulder.  Read More

Rob is originally from San Diego, but grew up in Singapore. He studies integrative physiology at CU and is also an opposite hitter for CU Men’s Volleyball.

Today, they are at Colorado Mesa University competing for a conference championship and a... Read More

Ben sees Boulder as the perfect place for his current endeavor: InstaMarch – The Imaginary Jobs Program. He told me: “The purpose of InstaMarch is that I want to get people all around the country doing their own micro-demonstrations on whatever issues they feel are important. And, I’m offering free mentorships – I’m a computer engineering teacher. So, I’m offering free mentorships in social media, computer programming, organizational design – all sorts of things created around these protests. Anybody can do it – left or right – but I have some certain terms for anybody doing... Read More

Meet Diana. She’s a CU Buff from Westminster, Colorado. After spending five weeks at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia last summer, Diana decided she wanted to attend school somewhere close to home. The humidity alone was enough to send her back to Colorado. She told me she likes to visit home a couple of times every month so she can be with her family… and take advantage of the delicious home cooked meals of course. Diana is now studying to be a graphic designer. In fact, I caught up with her just after she’d finished designing a movie poster in class.  Read More

Nate is an avid runner here in Boulder. He is currently a junior studying astrophysics at CU. After his studies, Nate puts every ounce of his leftover energy towards progressing his passion. To him, running is more than a sport – it’s a lifestyle. Unfortunately, he recently suffered a couple of injuries skiing in Summit County. Nate left the mountain with torn ligaments in his arm and ankle that day. That’s not keeping him from training though; he still finds a way around those obstacles to keep in shape. He follows a strict diet to make sure his body is in tip-top shape and also trains... Read More

I caught Zach during his lunch break on Pearl Street. I asked him if he could think of any time in his life that he’d want to go back to if he had the choice. He sat and thought for a moment before telling me, “I would probably want to go back to fifteen. Where I was just working a little bit, but mainly skateboarding and hanging out with friends.” He reminisced about a time when his left knee wasn’t shot. A time when he had no worries and little responsibilities. Zach still skates, but he said it’s just not the same. Fortunately, he’s also found that he has a passion for snowboarding... Read More
