Spencer Campbell co-edits 5280’s front of the book sections, Compass, Adventure, and Culture, and also writes service packages and department pieces. A proud Texan (proud of the state, not its crazy), Spencer covered NASCAR for the Bristol (Virginia) Herald Courier, beach life for Gulfshore Life magazine, and commerce for Business North Carolina magazine. Based on that background, he has no real clue why 5280 agreed to employ him, though he’s certainly glad they did. Spencer, a Texas A&M University alumnus and almost graduate of the Mayborn School of Journalism at the University of North Texas (he’s one class shy!), has won too many honors to mention here. When not collecting journalism awards, Spencer enjoys golf, HBO, and, yes, NASCAR.
For years, people have been calling the Denver-Boulder tech scene the next "Silicon Valley." But the Front Range has developed its own culture on the way to becoming a thriving hot spot for innovation.
