Faces of Boulder – Allison
Meet Allison! As a Graduate student in Architecture, Allison appreciates the sustainable lifestyle Boulder has to offer and believes that “the mountains are a perfect remedy” for any break from the hustle and bustle. When she’s not hiking, snowboarding, or walking her dog, Allison can be found playing pool at her go-to spot—the 28th St. Tavern. After she graduates, Allison hopes to move back to Boulder and work as a licensed Architect; already looking forward to afternoons by Coot Lake and endless sunshine once again. Thanks Allison!
A senior at the University of Colorado at Boulder, Martine studies English Creative Writing and actively pursues areas of study such as visual arts, linguistics, psychology, peace studies, and much more. Since middle school, Martine’s passion for life and its journey has translated into her writing—fostering a need for constantly new surroundings and unique experiences. This has led her to write not only about life in a ‘rose-colored’ glasses manner, but has also strengthened her love of photography. She loves spending her free time with outside with her dog and camera; shooting life in way that not only captures natural beauty, but also emphasizes the hidden details of her surroundings by taking the path less hiked. Since moving to Boulder, Martine has fallen in love with rock climbing and hiking, leading her to spend many sunny afternoons in various parts of the front rage and further strengthening her love of nature. With the Flat Irons as her backdrop, Martine is never in need of inspiration and aims to reveal the hidden treasures Colorado has to offer.
