The Owl

Rogan Oakes

Rogan Oakes, Staff Writer

Rogan Oakes is a junior at Boulder High School and new to being a writer for The Owl. Rogan has a passion for journalism and always wants to find the juiciest stories… and the juiciest of grapes. A true Coloradan, Rogan has lived in Boulder for the majority of his life. He has been learning the skills of martial arts since before he could read, and his practice paid off when he became a sensei at his dojo. When he's not teaching little kids how to beat each other up or putting each other in uncomfortable locks, you can normally find him looking through Spotify, finding strange music to listen to while he’s blowing off homework. Rogan loves the outdoors and all the activities that come with it, including hiking, camping, skiing, and planning for the inevitable apocalypse. However, Rogan also likes to get in touch with his effeminate side through the Front of House theater team, and Starbucks. This aspiring outdoorsman has a fondness for the great state of Minnesota, and you can often find him there waiting for a nibble at 1 of its 10,000 lakes… often while nibbling on some green grapes himself.
