Meet the Team

These are the people that brought Pulse29 to life.


Junior Charles

Vice President and all around happening dude, Pulse’29

I am some guy that goes to CCA named Junior Charles. Artist and Radical Conservative.... well, not the last part. I value the everyday experience of creative freedom that many of us take for granted. In the words of Tupac "Unlock your mind and break the chains of your misery"

Ashley Reyes

 Creative Nonfiction Editor and mystic critic, Pulse’29

My name is Ashley Reyes and one of the first things I want people to know about me is that I wear my Mexican American skin proudly. Through the years I’ve come to the realization the most valuable thing we own is our own body. Through the good days and the bad we create a home within ourselves and I love that it’s something nobody can take away from us.


Stephanie Stone –

Editor-in-Chief and quintessential badass, Pulse’29

Stephanie Stone is the current editor-in-chief of Pulse 29.  She recently decided to go back to school to pursue her love of all things books, and aspires to be a full-time editor/copy-writer. Stephanie was born and raised in Denver, Colorado and currently lives in Aurora with her boyfriend. She loves reading, writing, cats, romantic comedies, and handbags.

Tyler Lewis

Art Editor and black guy that’s not a “black guy”, Pulse’29

I enjoy writing and getting lost in my own worlds. I am fascinated by Japanese culture and enjoy being a geek. I live and breath Bundesliga football and plan on traveling a lot when I'm much older. But it all comes back to writing, without it, there'd be no joy in life.
