Eric Von Blon
Member Since: The beginning
If you have been in Office Nomads, you have met Eric. It would be near impossible to miss him. He’s a bit of a favorite around the office. In the early morning he is the one who comes in and makes Office Nomads presentable for all of you. He is also known for cooking up some mean waffles which pairs nicely with the hot coffee he gets going for all of you.
Eric came upon us after a long friendship with Jacob and a serious need for a place outside of his home. Jacob told him about his plan to open Office Nomads and Eric jumped. “I had been working from home for 8 months and was going absolutely mad. It was really serendipitous.” And so, Eric showed up and has been part of Office Nomads ever since.
In actuality Eric is trained as a Circuit Provisioner. “I wouldn’t know where to begin to actually explain it,” he confessed. The quick explanation involved ordering, tracking, and turning-up telecommunication circuits. Yes, turns out Eric is a complex individual. He is on the hunt now for a fresh gig in that field and until then he has taken up many activities to fill his time. He does Quality Assurance work for Ryan Salva and Capitol Media. That entails reviewing the websites they have designed and making sure nothing is broken. At the same time he is a rock star in the house cleaning biz. A number of Nomads have hired him and have welcomed Eric to work shirtless (yup) to make their homes sparkling.
If you haven’t befriended Eric yet, you really should. He always seems to be involved in interesting stuff. Many of us have seen the photos of him from the Zombie Walk in Fremont. The cocollage features him taking a bit of Jacob’s head, it appears. He acts as Fire Safety for Fire Spinners of Spinnery Arts. That really means that he makes sure that nobody is lit on fire or hurt in any other way so, in other words, he’s the most important guy to have around when playing with fire.
Next time you’re in Office Nomads, make sure you chat up Eric. Maybe he’ll make you waffles and tell you about the fancy chickens his mother paints. Maybe you’ll hear a funny story from Burning Man. Whatever the topic, it’s sure to be interesting. That’s just how Eric rolls.Social tagging: community > Coworking > eric von blon > Member Profile > office nomads > work-life balance
