Owner, Father, & Care Taker
Known by most as "The Don", you can typically find Robert rolling around the Mile High City wearing the most plush mink coats and smoking only the finest Cuban cigars. His inspiration for Ultra5280 came from his first interview with an old friend, Sean Combs. Puff Daddy, Puffy, P. Diddy, Diddy. You say tomato, he says tomato. In any case, Robert did P. Diddy a favor and as the stars aligned, Ultra5280 was created.
Editor in Chief and Writer
I was born and raised in south Florida, but I recently hail from good ol' Rocky Top Tennessee where my passion for writing developed. Making my way west, I have been in Denver for a year now and it has been an incredible adventure. I have seen some amazing shows in just a short year and have had the privilege to share it with you. Fact: My guiltiest of all pleasures is certainly Hall & Oates. I look forward to this new adventure and all of the excitement it will bring.

Maddie brings the local flavor to the team. Born and raised in the Mile High City, she's the only Denver native on Ultra5280's roster. Working directly with countless bands of all shapes, sizes, and sounds throughout the Denver music scene since 2008, you can usually find this tiny blonde in the crowd (or behind the merch booth) at nearly every local show all year round. Although the Denver’s music scene is her "thing”, she has toured on the Vans Warped Tour, helped bring Chicago-based punk festival Riot Fest to the Mile High City in 2013, and has permanent residency on multiple couches in LA. Camera in hand at almost all times, you'll see plenty of local and national coverage form her on the blog.
Matt comes to us with a degree in handsomeness and photography from the eastward lands of Chicago, Illinois. A well groomed young man, Matt's passion for mustaches makes him perfect for Denver, and his passion for photography is a perfect fit for Ultra5280. We'd like to keep him!
Being from the raging fiery hell of Phoenix, Arizona, I know when things are hot – which makes me a valuable addition to the Ultra5280 team. I’m an insatiable adventurer, F. Scott Fitzgerald obsessed social Monarch with an affinity for the color red. Personal ailments include overexposure to Jennifer Gray and Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing, being a really old soul, and excessive head banging to the mellifluous tones of Boyz II Men. I’m a cycling yogi (not at the same time, usually) and I really like to drink beer and/or Scotch at my day job. I know what you’re thinking; And I agree - “Cheers to that.”
PS: I have an uncanny love for writing and music. Why the F else would I be here?
