For the Dads & Dudes

With my oldest son starting tee-ball this year, it brought back many great memories of my childhood. In the town where I grew up, the little league association hosted a skills assessment day, then a draft. If you have spent any time around me, you probably know that Kansas City Royals blue runs through my veins. As an eight-year-old, you…

Making it Personal

The world of medicine is ever-changing. In many ways there have been great advances in the field, but in other ways physician to patient ratios widen. This relationship between patients and their doctors have become increasingly transactional and impersonal. Think about the last time you visited your primary care physician. This probably involved having to schedule an appointment months in…

’Tis the season for road trips, weekend warriors and outdoor adventures. Summer in Colorado is a blank canvas for the experiences you’re about to gain, the trips you’ll take and the feats you’ll accomplish. So go ahead. Set some goals. Make some plans. Pack up the car.

There are certain guidelines to making a good cocktail. One part this or that, a garnish here or there and maybe a mix or muddle. Most importantly—is it shaken or stirred?

Throughout history humans have craved and coveted small spaces. Little sanctuaries where we can feel safe and feed our creative bent. A place to philosophize, write, tinker, meditate, listen to the silence and explore the inner reaches of our true selves.


Walking into Atomic20 in downtown Boulder, the zing of innovative productivity is palpable. The space lends a studio-feel with an open floor plan bathed in natural lighting and little touches of artistic detail, like a framed piece of calligraphy stating, “Sleep Will Come." It’s a coworking space, but with a focus on creative talent or what CEO Trish Thomas likes…

Where did you grow up? As a kid, my family moved every few years, so I grew up a bit of a gypsy. We moved from Connecticut to Tokyo to New York, and to Texas three separate times. Thankfully the accent never stuck. When I came to Boulder to go to college in 1986, I knew I was home. I…
