I grew up in California and lived in New York City before making my way out to Boulder Startup Week in 2012. I created BLDRPPL because I am inspired by the community here and I want to share that energy with you.

As for me? Well, I like coffee, disc golf, reading, being outdoors, and Ancient Aliens (why? because aliens). My first word was cheese (or so I’m told). Ask me what squatchin’ means.

My company Blue Hook is a boutique web development consultancy. Want to teach local kids how to code? Check out CoderDojo Boulder and become a champion or mentor today.

Miguel y Briana

I’m Briana. Photographer. Camera nerd. Artist.

Except, I can’t draw or paint. I’ve always wished I could figure out how to get my hands to translate what I see in my head. When I was introduced to photography, I finally found my creative outlet.

Photography is my language, it’s how I express myself. I create fantasies and memories through the lens. You can find me at

Heyo! Becca here 🙂

I used to do all kinds of fun things like ride mountain bikes, go on adventures and attend way too many tech meet ups. Now I spend all my time & energy building and running the Block, a dance-based community center here in Boulder. Which is pretty beyond great. 

When not hanging out with high schoolers or learning how to breakdance, I can be found helping companies tell their stories via RiverandLark, a web development and video production company.
