Alumni Update: Daniel Boozan

Movin' On Alumni Update

Daniel Boozan ’11 CO

Daniel Boozan sustained a traumatic brain injury in a bike accident in March 2011. He lost the use of his right arm and had nerve damage that affected his lungs. “Racing bikes was my life, and in many ways I felt I literally and figuratively lost the use of my right hand,” Daniel said.

Daniel said after rehab he felt lost in Arizona, where he was living at the time. He decided to move to Colorado and start over. “Best decision I have probably ever made. I almost immediately had family and community here, and they helped get me going again,” he said.

In 2014 Daniel began rock climbing with Paradox Sports. “Turns out you can climb one-handed! The activity and community were similar to what I had as a bike racer, and I have been adventuring and climbing with them ever since,” he said.

Daniel is now pursuing his MBA at CU Boulder.
