Tate Chamberlin is pushing the envelope in social, educational and musical events by continually reintegrating an arsenal of new concepts and human connections. Through an experiential remix uniting artists, activists and entrepreneurs, each step and swell brings a new experience by cultivating curiosity, education & empathy. This arsenal will serve well as he descends upon the world like a platinum-fisted pterodactyl, dropping artistic carpet-bombs carrying the seed of expression and social conglomeration. Crushing underfoot the banality of average events, flying high the mighty banner of unconventional creativity and blasting his mighty war horns across the battlefields of entertainment.
Luke Welborn is the founder and co-owner of Zocalo Coffee House. He was born in Colorado but claims "dual citizenship" between there and Montana as he has a long family history in both states. After college, he moved to Bozeman with his roommates to ski and avoid the real world. He always planned on going to medical school but started a business instead. Five years later, Zócalo has become the manifestation of its Mexican counterpart: a place for the community to gather in the center of town.
