Leah Concialdi:

Leah Concialdi enjoys the Jekyll/Hyde dichotomy of being an active musician and writer. While music is her first love and primary passion in life, she has realized not to let her love of words go unnoticed when it comes to professional endeavors and is excited to be on board as a writer for DiscoverCBD. Leah studied music education, classical saxophone performance, and media studies at the University of Northern Colorado. Since graduation, she has explored a variety of professional avenues including being an elementary band teacher, media specialist at a medical marijuana center, music publicist, and social media coordinator. She currently performs on primarily baritone saxophone and EWI in Denver-based musical outfits ATOMGA, Tnertle, Sleazy Grease, and more. By day, Leah is a freelance content writer and digital marketer who helps businesses raise the bar by custom content creation, social media management, PR efforts, and more.

Nate Hemmert:

Nate Hemmert got his start as a die-hard Hunter S. Thompson fan. Little did he know, though, that this would flourish into a love of writing and all things Gonzo. A photographer by nature, his use of prose only came to fruition after many years of fighting it. Realizing he could share his affinity for wordsmithery – and all around nerdiness – with others, he took those skills and began to develop his own distinctive style.

After graduating from Metropolitan State University of Denver, with a focus in Multimedia Journalism, Nate took his love for storytelling and began to share it with as many as possible. Whether through photography, writing or any other medium, Nate thrives on sharing the human condition. With tinges of well-placed pop culture, he helps bring the story to a level where true connection is possible.
