Every face has its own story, but this one tells two. This is a true face of Boulder, Colorado. A face that can always be found downtown. A face that has its own spirit and lives as part of another. A face that really is a window to the soul. This isn’t only the face of a man wise beyond his years; this is part of Boulder’s collective, figurative “face”. A character that gives Boulder some of its own character.

This face tells a story of the people who live here. People who are creative, active, and appreciative. People with depth. People who welcome creations such as this one into the world. Boulder is a place with its own story, and it’s told by each and every one of the many faces it’s made up of. Every face’s story is dense enough to fill a lifetime on its own, but together, we are something even greater. We are Boulder. We are a place that knows you have a story. A place that wants to hear it. A place that wants you to tell its story. A place that you are a part of. A place with many faces.

Matt is convinced that moving to Boulder to attend CU has been the best decision of his life. He fell in love with Colorado and discovered a new passion for snowboarding when he first visited the state in 2010. Matt is now a third year student studying technology, arts and media with hopes to turn his passion for photography into a career. You can find Matt behind the lens shooting for the CU Independent or on the court setting for CU Men’s Volleyball if he doesn’t run into you somewhere downtown. Upon graduating from CU, Matt plans to travel the globe as a photojournalist in hopes to quench his thirst for adventure.
