Guess who I found exploring Chautauqua Park? This lovely lady, Julia Fallman. It’s safe to say that Julia is making a positive impact on the Boulder community, not only at Impact Hub Boulder as a Communications and Programming Coordinator, but also at Unreasonable Institute as a Global Labs Maverick. Julia describes Boulder as, “a sunny place where entrepreneurship meets the outdoors. In one day I could go for a trail run, go to work, climb the Flatirons, and grab dinner at the farmers market.” Cheers to that Julia!  Read More

I want to serve the state of Colorado and make a positive impact on our collective health. Petitioners are people too, and we are not trying to harass you, we just want a little moment of your time.”  Read More

An Ebio major by day, slam dunk champion by night. Meet Mak, my neighbor and current SlamJampalooza winner. Mak moved to Colorado from Alaska to attend CU Boulder and hone his mini-hoop skills. Every opportunity he gets, Mak travels around the world to scuba dive and fish. If you were to ask Mak how he would describe himself, he would say he’s a mix between Shaq and Aquaman. An opportunist by nature, there is no doubt Mak helps make Boulder the intriguing place we can all call home. Thanks Makane!  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

“Running clears my head and is a great way for me to relieve stress. I try to get out every day for either physical or mental reasons. I love it because it gives me a freedom unlike anything else. I can zone out completely or focus on certain issues and work it out in my head. Most importantly, beer tastes that much better after a solid run.” Thanks for the insight Josh!  Read More

“For me, the connection between nature and beer was very natural. I’m a mountain biker, skier, camper… and my business plan spoke to that. We produce and sell craft beer for outdoor enthusiasts and [a can] is the best was to take a beer with you while enjoying nature; it’s compact, can be crushed after use, and recycled. And from the beginning, we have tried to be sustainable—we are FSC certified, we have a high efficiency boiler, and buy wind turbine credits to be 100% wind powered… [The environment] isn’t better off with business, but it is our duty to be responsible.”   Matt... Read More

Nick is in love with the ski and snowboard industry. Ever since moving to Boulder a couple of years ago, he has loved the laid back culture and positive vibes that surround the ski and snowboard world. When Nick was hired by Deviation, a Denver based ski and snowboard company, he told me he couldn’t have been happier. He became a sales rep for them and was delighted with the pleasure of representing Deviation at the 2017 SIA Snow Show. Nick obviously showed a passion for the sport and a bond with those who practice it. He was more than happy to tell me all about Deviation’s missions... Read More

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

“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

Do you own the hat shop? “Not yet! I used to come here every Saturday and hang out because they have live music on Friday and Saturday and I know a lot of musicians so I’d come and see them. I was hanging out so much people thought that I worked here so I think when an opening became available they asked me if I wanted a job.”- Jovan Fish  Read More

Just by looks, you might never guess that Mark and Drew are monks in training. The two monks-to-be came to Boulder to spread their ideals far and wide. Both of the young men practice Bhakti Yoga, a sort of spiritual subdivision of the Hindu religion. As soon as I saw them, I recognized the welcoming look in their eyes. I must say, they were the happiest people I’d talked to all day. They were genuinely excited to share and talk with new people. That’s something you don’t see too often anymore. In the age of the smartphone, it was nice to meet two excited, genuine, young men. Good luck with... Read More

“There are two things that sparked my space interest. The first being it was highly publicized in the 60’s when I was growing up, so I had a lot of opportunity to see what was going on. Later, my interest continued as I read and understood the technology that got people to the moon. I found the technology interesting.”    Read More
