I bought a few really old amplifiers on a whim and they needed a little work. I took them to a friend of mine to fix them up and he inspired me to build a 5F1 Fender Tweed Champ amplifier kit. I built it and had a blast doing so, so I bought and built another kit. Read more>>

I was born and raised in Boulder, Colorado. I got really lucky to have parents that loved to travel, and I had my first passport at six months old. My childhood was spent heavy on culture. When I was seven, we traveled the world for a year and a half. We lived in New Zealand and Australia and then passed through Thailand and China on the way back. Read more>>

Life is funny sometimes. About seven years ago, I had made an investment in a friend’s manufacturing business, unfortunately, without digging very much into the business’s overall health and financial viability… ok, without looking at really anything.

When I was thirteen, the studio I danced with hired me as an instructor, and that solidified my desire to teach. I have taught dance ever since. During college, I danced for the University of Nebraska, and as soon as I finished college, I directed my own Just For Kix dance program in Kearney. Since teaching was where my heart was, I pursued a degree in education and have been teaching middle school in Loveland for the past thirteen years. Read more>>

I’ve been told that as a kid I would jump on the opportunity to help my family members who were in pain by providing massage. I remember standing on my grandpa’s back and massage my grandma’s shoulders. Always being told that I had a knack for it. It never occurred to me to do massage therapy when I grew up. Read more>>

Amanda and Richard Newcomb

We are a husband and wife team who are fortunate to have found investors in family and amazing friends. The mere fact that they believed in us and this crazy idea is humbling. Amanda had a vision for the salon and my (Richard’s) father was able to bring that to life. From the steel-pipe stylist stations to the giant front desk, our entire salon is hand-built by family.

I began my formal studies in Ayurveda in 2008 and so many of the teachings that I had acquired began to meld and coexist as one in my heart. I felt the profound healing that was present within the wisdom and science of nature. My lifelong allergies and digestive problems dissolved. I started to feel more vibrant, awake and clear about the trajectory of my life and health. All because of Ayurveda, the science of life and longevity from India. Read more>>
