David had been writing songs since he was a kid, but of course, as life got busy, that passion got set on a shelf. When he found himself with more time on his hands after losing hours at work, he picked it up again. He learned guitar and loves it all over again. He also started traveling across the country. He’s originally from California, but he’s travelled all across the West Coast and into Mexico. But he came to Boulder because of the scenery and people. He dreams of traveling all over the world, but right now, Colorado is still his favorite spot so far.  Read More

Keith didn’t think he was going to make it to the summit of the flatirons. He’s from Pennsylvania, but made the trip out to Boulder so he could visit a friend. Keith was worried that hiking mountains that are already a mile high would prove to be difficult. He was especially worried about getting altitude sickness and suffering through horrible headaches – which have been a problem for him in the past. After hearing stories from friends and family that have visited, he was expecting to be out of breath and in need of oxygen almost immediately. But, on the contrary, he found it much easier... Read More

Hi there! I’m Maliika! I’m a Denver transplant. My mom brought me from very far away. I’m not sure where here is but I like it so far. Snow is fun. There’s so many trails that are good for a dog like me. It was scary coming here though. I had to spend the night at an airport somewhere. It was very strange and lonely. But Mom made sure that I was ok, and now we’re here and it’s great. My favorite thing is anything that I can go chase. Currently pine cones are extra fun. I’ll chase one for hours if you keep throwing it for me. You are going to throw it for me right?  Read More

Kat is not a Boulder native, but she loves the focus on the arts and the eclecticism that Boulder has. She’s been writing for Elephant Journal for sometime, and since they’re headquartered in Boulder she figured that this was the perfect time to come check them out.

Julia has lived in Boulder for the past three years. When she first moved here, she rented a two bedroom, two bath apartment with all utilities and pet rent included for $750 a month. Now, she lives in a one bedroom apartment with her roommate for $650 a month, no utilities included. She sleeps on the couch. “I think the weed is to blame.” Well everyone thinks that. “No, no.

“A musician, a poet, and a young man searching for his life.” To escape the “Meth heads and Mormons” of Missouri, Pier came to Boulder in search of fabled beautiful scenery and a lot of enlightened people. While he found this to be true, he also found that there is a level of pretentiousness that comes with the amount of money some people have here. There’s a huge focus on arts in Boulder that he falls right into. He primarily plays guitar, but is the master of all things strung, like the ukulele and bass. But he’s a “lyricist above all else”. He’s always had an affinity for... Read More

“People have been surprised to find out that I’m gay. Is it based on how I talk? How I dress? Some parts of my personality fits into the perceptions of gay men, like caring about dressing ‘nice’… But what does that actually mean? Sometimes I wonder where I fit in. Am I a portrayal of gay culture?… I’m a gamer. I’m a graphic designer. I live for music. I’m a basic nerd. I am me.” -Dean Dean is a graphic designer originally from Alaska.  Read More

     “I suffered from severe depression since I was 10 years old. The medication I was prescribed never offered me real relief… it mostly made me feel numb. I didn’t agree with the diagnosis, but years of trying to get off medication didn’t work. I finally found my answer [about 7 years ago]. When I first found psychic schools, I thought they were like a cult… and for a while I kept my distance. Growing up in conservative Tennessee gave me a false perception of psychics as well as the abilities I suppressed my whole life. When I finally started taking classes,... Read More

Accountant by day; saving people from the rat race by night. Well, not really—it’s usually weekends. Karen isn’t what people would consider a super hero.
