I’ve been able to see Angels since I was a child. My first memory is at the age of three. I don’t see “people with wings” now and as a child they appeared as children but I could see through them. They’ve been with me all my life. After telling my Angels “Yeah, whatever you guys “for most of my life, I finally decided to accept my gifts and use them to serve others.  Now I share the healing energy the Angels use me to channel to help others heal.

Photography has always been a passion of mine. I started out with Nature Photography and grew more and more in love with the idea of getting behind a camera and capturing not only the beauty of Nature. But also capturing Families, Couples, and more! After my own wedding in 2018, I had decided it was time to truly start in my passion! I started off with Family Portraits and Senior Photos and grew into doing Weddings and Elopements! I took my own wedding experiences and put them into my work! I am in love with detail photos, (the dress, shoes, rings, flowers!) As well as capturing the guests! I like to do things a bit differently and I think that is a part of my appeal as a Photographer!.  Read more>>

At an early age, I found myself intrigued by fashion and hair. By high school, I was determined to put my artistic eye into a profession where I was able to make people feel good about themselves and help them enhance their overall beauty. I enrolled in cosmetology school at Warren Tech in Lakewood at age 17. The program was eight hours/five days a week. All my high school courses were done online until I graduated from both in 2005. I then started at my first salon in 2006! I worked as a commission-based and booth rental stylist. I found that booth rental, due to the nature of its independence was what suited me best for 10 years. I enjoyed working in large salon environments, mostly so I could watch other hair artists around me. To learn from others is the greatest gift! I left my last salon home of nine years in 2017 to break out of the traditional salon setting, and into a salon suite! From there, I started to grow and build career confidence. Read more>>

Director Ave

I’ve been making media for as long as I can remember. My love for technology and artistic mediums from video games to music to movies has always been there, but I also never just wanted to consume it. I have always been interested in how things work and how I could create cinematic masterpieces by myself. At different times in my life, I have been more interested in creating either music, video games, or movies among a bunch of other side media-based interests. After coming to Denver two years ago I began to become known as a music video director over all of my other talents specifically in the rap genre. After working with some of biggest acts since then, I feel blessed to be appreciated in this up-and-coming scene. Not being from Colorado I struggled to get my foot in the door, but once I did and more people got the chance to see what I can do, I quickly grew and now I feel like Denver is my home. I don’t know if I will be here forever but I will always appreciate the love this city has given me. Read more>>

I am an accidental entrepreneur, although it’s in my genes. My great grandfather and grandfather were both entrepreneurs, and my dad opened a surf shop in Maine in his early 20’s. Before venturing into entrepreneurship, I worked for over 15 years in marketing, branding, product development, and sustainability for food retailers and consumer products companies, leading teams, strategy, and programs in the US & Europe. This experience brought me exposure to many facets of food and personal care products and ignited my deep interest in all-things ingredients,  In 2019, I decided to take the risk of leaving my stable corporate job, driven by what I’d learned and a passion for sharing that knowledge with others. Today I am an educator dedicated to truth and transparency around ingredients, toxins, and products, their impact on human and environmental health, and how they are marketed to consumers. On the side, I’m converting a school bus into a tiny home using as many eco-friendly and low toxin materials as possible, providing a great opportunity to continue to learn and practice my passion.  Read more>>

Caleb Guilliams

I grew up in Central Wisconsin and am the oldest of 6 kids. I have always been fascinated with how money works. I got a job at a community bank in Central Wisconsin at the age of 17. By 19 years old I took over the entire investment department and began to see firsthand how the majority of Americans were financially failing despite “professional” financial advising. After 3 years of traveling the country and being mentored by the most successful financial minds, I became passionate about helping people find a better way to build wealth. I left my prestigious position at the bank, founded my company BetterWealth at the age of 21, authored a best-selling book “The AND Asset” at age 22, host the BetterWealth Podcast, and speak to thousands around the world. I have since moved my company to Colorado, we have 15 employees and growing. I am one of the youngest in the space with the ability to serve clients in all 50 states.  Read more>>

Taylor Davenport

I am an Intimate Wedding/Elopement and Lifestyle Photographer based out of Golden, Colorado. My passion for photography started at a young age, I started doing film photography and developing my own photos before I even picked up a digital camera. After high school, I went to art school thinking I wanted to do only film photography and sculpting. That all changed when a friend of mine was getting married and asked me if I would photograph her wedding. Right after her wedding, I knew I wanted to be a wedding photographer and start my own business. I never thought that my love for photography would turn into my career, where I get to photograph people in love in the places they love. I am incredibly honored that my clients trust and allow me to be part of such intimate moments. They are the whole reason I have been able to do what I love for the past 5 years. Read more>>
