Check out Boulder’s rising stars below.

Adriana Balentine

I always knew I wanted to be in the field of human services. Healing through connection with others has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. My path was clear so I went on to pursue an undergraduate degree in Psychology followed by a Masters in Social Work. Read more>>

Will Day

Around 4 or 5 am, you might find Will Day heading to his warehouse studio in Boulder, Colorado. He’ll be alone painting on large canvases, forsaking brushes. Then, after a few hours, he’ll open the studio’s garage door to the waking world. His “open door policy”. Read more>>

Cole Pates

I am who I am today because of the world of action sports. I grew up as a skater in a small town in Eagle, CO. All I did was skate and I became obsessed with the culture. As my interest in the skating community grew so did my aspirations, first as a skater than a photographer and videographer. Read more>>

Michelle Theall

I’ve been in publishing for twenty-five years in various capacities, even starting my own magazine in 2003. It was because of that experience that I landed a job as interim editor in chief for Alaska magazine, which allowed me to stay based in Colorado while they looked for a local editor to run the title.

Boulder Food Rescue began with a group of friends, a tragic reality and a strong desire to create community-wide change. I started becoming interested in food because it was such a tangible thing we interact with every day of our lives – when I realized that we use an immense amount of resources to grow. Read more>>

Jordan Urban

I’ve always been drawn to people, to the inner workings of their lives and stories. Since childhood, I’ve had a tendency to bypass small talk and skip straight to the deep conversation. This natural curiosity about humans led me to pursue an undergraduate degree in psychology from NYU. Read more>>

Todd Berger

We were both very free-spirited, independent, artistic kids, compelled to build things, and make art. And we’re still that way. In hindsight, it makes a lot of sense that we went on to create a studio supporting dual art and design practices. Read more>>

Bob Manthy

My 2008 separation and eventual divorce from an increasingly violent spouse left me overwhelmed as a single parent and with the belief that I would be alone for the rest of my life. Life was over. Of course, about a year later I met a woman who seemed to care for me. Read more>>

Bree Halax

I was born and raised in Colorado, and currently resides in Boulder, CO. I initially went to college for business with a major in marketing, but after working in the business world I realized my true passion was for interior design. Read more>>

Deedee Hampton

I couldn’t help it- I’d see a blank spot on a paper & start filling it in- mostly with horses or what we now call Zen Tangle. In high school, my art teacher was the football coach & it had the reputation of being THE class to take if you wanted to sit around & talk sports and get an easy A. Read more>>

Stephanie Decker

I’m from Germany and I lived there for the past 30 years. In 2018 my today’s husband got the chance to move to Boulder and work as a postdoc. Relatively spontaneously, we decided to go together. We quit our jobs and apartments, got married, and packed our backpacks. Read more>>

Erik Rebich

My Co-Founder, Scott Emeson gets all the credit for creating our ice creams. He had been working on formulations for a few years before I met him. I was introduced through a family member that was friends with him. Over the next year, we stayed in touch and began talking more. Read more>>
