Dream Fellows

Current Fellows

We’re recruiting the adventurous, the explorers, the dreamers, with the boldest ideas on the planet. We believe the voices and dreams of youth matter. Our Fellowship Program is for students to meaningfully apply class content to a real-world startup. Our fellows each lead a project within Dream Tank based on interest. This is a unique opportunity to work on a truly intergenerational and diverse team!

Connor Serr

Grant Writing Fellow

As the Grant Writing Fellow I hope to secure funding for Dream Tank so that it can continue its great work and so that it may fulfill all of its amazing aspirations. As a technical communicator I am also responsible for managing data, contacts, and keeping things organized.

I am a writer, curator, and artist based in Denver, CO. I am currently a senior at UC Denver in the English Writing program with a minor in Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience. I have a love for all art but am especially invested in visual art, literature, film, and music.

I am on a journey to reconcile all of my passions into a cohesive practice. I am particularly interested in art, social justice, environmental conservation, and how these issues intersect.

I aim to make a difference in the world and positively impact the lives of others in whatever way I can.

“Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames.” – Rumi 


Riley Grasso  

Content Development Fellow

Hello! My name is Riley. I’m 20 years old and a student at the University of Colorado studying creative writing. I love telling a good story, regardless of the medium. I also greatly enjoy music, and have played piano for 15 years.  I joined Dream Tank because I can write stories about what they do in the form of blogging. They’re helping me to push my boundaries and expand my skillset, which is something that they do for everyone who joins their team. I’m super excited to be working with them!
