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 2012 and all of the excitement it will bring.
Writer and Photographer
Always the round peg in the square hole, I bring the unique, local flavor to Ultra5280’s team. Born and raised in the Mile High City, i’ve been working directly with countless bands of all shapes, sizes, and sounds in the Denver music scene since 2008. You can find me in the crowd (or behind the merchandise booth) at nearly every major local show in Denver every season of the year. Majoring in Music Industry Studies, it’s been a joy giving my degree meaning and purpose, and an honor to be a member of the Ultra5280 team. Although Denver’s music scene is my “thing”, I listen to all sorts of music from bands big and small. You’ll see plenty of reviews of national acts from me on here, as well my face interviewing bands for Ultra5280’s “Sessions” section.
Matt comes to us with a degree in handsomeness and photography. A well groomed young man, Matt's passion for photography is a perfect fit for us here. 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?
