Portrait of Matt

Matt is an instructor in the Technology, Arts and Media (TAM) Program at CU Boulder. His latest pursuit challenges the idea of a controller in the world of video games.

Sean is a juggler, student, musician and traveler. He has been juggling for two or three years now. “I initially got into it for the music scene,” Sean said. He told me he “was playing a lot of gigs that attracted jugglers,” and that’s what initially peaked his interest. Now, years later, Sean juggles daily. He told me that he tries to aim for at least thirty minutes to an hour of practice each day. I got it out of him that he does indeed juggle fire, ladies and gentlemen. However, he said it was much easier to practice when he was living in New Zealand where the climate was moister.... 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

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

Caroline, “I’m from Minneapolis Minnesota and I have family that lives close by. I grew up skiing  Keystone for so long that I just felt like a draw towards Colorado. My passions are that I really love learning languages and learning about other cultures in the language as I grew and I’ve been learning about different cultures and now I am starting Spanish. I really love adventures and waking up every morning in Boulder is inspiring, and arguably life changing. I want to go out there and I want to explore and maybe draw something in nature. I think learning other languages... Read More

Sofi, born and raised in Palo Alto, California. She’s 22 years old, and currently attending the University of Colorado @ Boulder. After being in Boulder, she sees that it was much more than she imagined. There’s something about Boulder that you can’t quite fully explain. Her life quote would be “Live in the moment” and this is because you never know what may happen to you two seconds later, or right now for that matter. This made her decide to come to Boulder because it seems as if everyone lives in the moment here. Simple and Sweet. Thanks Sofi. Boulder appreciates... Read More

This girl has Boulder written all over her. The Boulder atmosphere and beauty runs through her veins. Hannah loves skiing and passionately played softball for some time in  here life. It’s so ironic how you can just catch good vibes from people, because she felt like I was a cool guy from the vibes she caught from me, and she was an umpire on college level. She acquired a tattoo of the flatiron on her shoulder as a constant reminder of where she’s from and how amazing it is to be from a place where people come to tour almost everyday. Hannah says she always wanted to be here in Boulder... Read More
