Colin St. John is a fourth- or fifth-generation Coloradan, depending on whom you ask. You can find him in New York City or Denver, depending on the week. In either place,  he'll be rooting for the Broncos, listening to Phish without irony, and contributing to Rolling StoneDeadspin, EsquirePlayboy, Thrillist, Inverse, Pitchfork, 
the St. John family email chain and other outlets. Sometimes he totally sells out and writes advertisements.
