The Owl

Cole Drozdek

Cole Drozdek, Media Director

Cole Drozdek is a senior at Boulder High School. He is an avid climber and can often be found at The Spot Gym, where he has been on the team for the past decade. This past summer, Cole has found that his latest passion is bagging peaks with his buddies, although he is not a fan of waking up at 2 am. When he’s not climbing or hiking, Cole can be found perusing thrift stores or watching films with his friends. Cole’s passion for podcasts and movies led him to become a member of The Owl staff, and he hopes to further this passion for writing reviews and starting his very own podcast. Perhaps his first podcast episode will be dedicated to why green grapes are inherently better than purple grapes.
