Love your Neighbor on Vacation - a VLOG

My best friend and business partner at Bandwidth, David Morken, was an editor for the ORU Student Newspaper.  He's a great writer, and an even better editor....and an even better friend, who can tell me like it is.  He thinks I'm a lousy writer. 

Refugees finding work in Colorado

Refugees finding work in Colorado

Millenials flock to Denver faster than almost every other city in the country. Colorado’s recreational culture, active lifestyle and surging downtown create a magnetic atmosphere for young people. But our new neighbors include more than hipsters in search of tech startups and fresh powder.

“Colorado is better than other places,” said Ah Hki, who moved to Colorado two years ago from a refugee camp in Thailand. “I found a great job and have a lot of work. Housing is expensive here, but the wages are higher here, too. And the weather is better.”

Each year, several thousand refugees make Colorado their home. When they do, a make-or-break factor in their acclimation is whether or not they can find good work.
