Faces of Boulder – Madii

August 28th, 2019

Moving to Colorado from Arkansas, Madii is a true to the bone theater gal. Not only has she been able to spend more time with her family, she has also fallen in love with the mountains, Denver, and the theater scene— which says “is not too big, but IS fabulous.” A seamstress by day, Madii spends her free time hiking with friends or out on the town at local pubs, restaurants, and markets.

Faces of Boulder – Jack

August 9th, 2019

Jack moved to Boulder four years ago after growing up in Buffalo, New York, a much different atmosphere. “The people here are so active, and don’t look at you funny while running around in short shorts,” Jack comments on the people of Boulder. He was drawn to Colorado for the outdoors, and loves exploring new hiking trails and getting lost in the mountains. Along with the physical exercise, he enjoys tasting all the beers Colorado has to offer, although he can’t choose a favorite because he doesn’t want “any breweries to kick him out.” The laid back ambiance of Boulder helps him... Read More

Colorado Yoga Teacher Spotlight: Meet Brett Mehlman

July 21st, 2019

It’s 6 a.m., and slivers of sunlight peep through the large, elongated windows of Brett Mehlman’s Denver-based studio apartment, greeting him as he begins his morning. A fresh glass of water is the first thing on his mind, followed by a guided meditation. As a busy yoga instructor, an established morning ritual is key for Brett. Preparing for his first client of the day, he concocts a blend of ginger, turmeric, black pepper, and skullcap for tea. “The trick here, is to add coconut milk,” he says with a grin, walking across the plant-lined floor to the kitchen cupboard. “Coconut milk... Read More

Meet Johnnia!

Meet Johnnia! Johnnia is a local artist who has been designing t-shirts and painting in Boulder since she moved here from the Miami, Florida area in 2017. Johnnia has been drawing ever since she was little, and has always seen the importance of developing her own style. She always desired to be more than, “a human copy machine,” as she puts it, continually striving to create a unique portrayal of even the most mundane objects rather than trying to create a perfect replica of something. Johnnia’s father introduced her to art at an early age. Her father was a self-taught welder who would... Read More

Meet Elizabeth! She was volunteering at the Boulder Creek Fest encouraging kids to sign up for reading camps this summer. “Reading is important to me because it opens a world that you can’t explore anywhere else.

Faces of Boulder – Peter

May 20th, 2019

You can catch Peter on Pearl Street performing his specialty of juggling with both his hands and feet. Starting at a young age, Peter loved to juggle: but with a twist. He competed in hacky sack competitions and won the world tournament multiple times. This taught him to juggle first with his feet, then his hands; now he juggles with both at the same time. Peter started to preform shows in San Fransisco in 1994, without know what he was doing, but eventually figured it out and hasn’t stopped. He’s preformed all over the world. His favorite places to perform were Prague and Vietnam.... 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.
