Paul is the founder of Doghead Creative and the co-founder of Queen City Cooperative and Colorado Solidarity Fund. He is passionate about the arts and cooperative economics. The former offers space and tools to represent reality, society and history, while the latter helps us to practically reimagine the status quo.
Yessica X. Holguin,
Strategy & Facilitation
I am passionate about building a community of movement builders to tap into our collective power to inspire, transform, and foster an environment where everyone can thrive. I am a part of CSF because I believe that we can pool our talent and financial resources to collectively support cooperatives and strengthen the solidarity economy, especially in traditionally-excluded communities.
Business Support & Co-Founder
I have worked as a professional cooperative business and organizational development consultant since 2011. Obtaining financing is often a major barrier to co-op formation. I am proud to be a co-founding member of CSF to enable community-supported financing to cooperatively owned enterprises that give back so much to our communities!

Daniel Vogelsang, Website/Outreach
I am a Kansas-born farm-boy turned website-designer/web-app engineer, with a passion for environmental and commutative justice, and economic reform. The CSF offers me an opportunity to put my money where my mouth is by focusing on the re-imagination of local economy.
I believe societies are strongest when they look out for the least-advantaged, and individuals are strongest when they operate from generosity. I converted my business to a co-op in 2011 as a way of putting these principles into practice. I love knowing that membership in CSF allows my small contributions to be magnified in scale and scope.
I am an admirer, documenter, and builder of co-op projects, particularly platform co-ops for the online economy. I also teach in Media Studies at CU Boulder. I also wrote a book on co-ops, "Everything for Everyone."
I am a business, intellectual property, and tax resolution attorney. My law practice focuses on serving a wide range of small business owners and entrepreneurs in Colorado as their outside corporate counsel. I am an advocate for the cooperative, "shared economy" business movement as a way to address economic inequality in our country.
I'm passionate about breaking chains and building community. I'm here to create and be a part of new models and systems we can uses to leverage our collective power.
I joined the Colorado Solidarity Fund because I believe in making access to capital easier for under-resourced communities and cooperative business models.
Outreach, Web, Marketing
I'm a husband and new dad who is passionate about building community, growing food, and breathing fresh air. I've been living and moving alongside of people experiencing homelessness for the last decade and I believe that an economy that works for all of us and perpetuates cycles of beauty rather than violence is possible.
Having lived in and worked with Co-Ops of various kinds I've found them to be potentially transformative ways to organize. I love CSF's emphasis on low-income and marginalized communities in particular and hope we truly do grow a Solidarity Economy that lifts up all that need it most.
