All Local, All The Time

Chris Teta Profile

I am a father of one girl and three boys, all of whom played high school sports. Julia and Andrew are Niwot and CU graduates, while Matt is a senior at CU and Callan is taking a snowboarding-focused gap year.

I have lived in or around Niwot since moving here from Boulder to save $100/month on rent while a CU undergrad in 1988. I used to brag about rent at the one-bedroom Countryside condo being under $400/month back then. I belonged to the local gym, known as Cottonwood Health & Racquet Club, which was located where the Niwot Market is today, and my ex-wife Laura waited tables at the Mexican restaurant in Cottonwood Plaza, known as El Castillo.

I have worked for most of the new car dealerships around Boulder and Longmont and have owned specialty car dealerships in both Golden and Denver before becoming a self-employed contractor and handyman, framing basements, building decks and fixing sprinklers.

Since 2018 I have been a fixture at our Rock & Rails summer concert series managing security and setup and breakdown at Whistle Stop Park every Thursday from June through August.

I coached baseball for Niwot Youth Sports from 2015-2018 and am hoping that writing for the Left Hand Valley Courier can help me reconnect with the local youth sports scene.
