Matt Kuphaldt, freelance creative genius (that’s our declaration, not his), came to Office Nomads in 2011 and quickly discovered it to be a perfect place to do his graphic design, animation, and illustration work. Most days in the space, Matt is hand-drawing directly into his computer or tablet, crafting unique works for

Matt will tell you that he may have already hit the apex of his career already, as he’s got his very own profile up on the Transformers Wiki.Where does a guy go from there?

When he’s not at Nomads, Matt loves puzzle events and festivals, and hikes up the occasional mountain or large hill.

Meet the Community Cultivators!

We have a great crew of Community Cultivators helping out in and around the space right now, and we wanted to introduce them to you!

Anisha_ShankarAnisha and her team are crafting ways to turn human waste into a biogas power source. Which means she is basically going to save the world. Like any respectable superhero, she is also volunteering her time to be a Community Cultivator so she can create some pretty impressive change around the Office Nomads space as well.

We are so lucky to have Anisha back on the Community Cultivation team after she took some time off to participate in Fledge. Anisha is always happy to sit down with her fellow Nomads to share in some deep and enlightening conversations, and just might qualify as one of the most humble people around. Seriously. Just try to get her to brag. Try.

Knate works as a family law attorney by day, working for “families of all shapes and sizes.” In addition, he holds a fiery affection for theater and acting, which manifested itself in the form of an undergraduate degree.

Knate is the epitome of an extrovert, and enjoys every aspect of working at the front table with us. If you need something else to talk to him about, Knate has a keen interest in tabletop role playing games and game design. Or you could always ask him about the most recent mix tape he has constructed. Whatever the topic, he’ll be game to have a chat!

Paola_Jaime

Paola is a superstar Spanish instructor, medical interpreter, and content developer for online Spanish learning programs. She loves to help people learn languages and is very excited to have found the perfect environment for her group classes here at Office Nomads– where she offers free language orientations.

Outside of the office, Paola is currently obsessed with Argentine Tango dancing and music. Don’t know what Argentine Tango is all about? Paola would send you here to watch a fun video showing what Argentine Tango really looks like (no, no on is holding a rose in their mouth while they dance).

Chelsea_McClainNEW

Chelsea is our fearless leader of the Community Cultivator team here at Office Nomads, who never ceases to amaze us with her insight and joyful presence!

She is the embodiment of cheer and joy, and all of the Community Cultivators feel so blessed to have her in our lives. Chelsea is also the Queen of Waffle Wednesday, her delicious creations continually impress us and our taste buds.

Interested in becoming a Community Cultivator? Swing by the front desk and chat us up sometime. The position lasts 6 months so there are usually upcoming openings to join the team.

Tali knew she should join Office Nomads because Jupiter, her ruling planet, was moving into the social house of her chart. She had been working from home and this seemed like the

perfect time to find a place where she could work around others. Already, as a Sagittarius, she’s an extrovert and finds that she thrives on entrepreneurial energy and creative independent folks. “My favorite coffee shop turned into a bar so it was time to get a real desk, not just a booth. Plus, I was sick of smelling like espresso at the end of each day.”

So the Seattle half of the AstroTwins and AstroStyle found her way to Office Nomads. Tali works with her identical twin sister, Ophira, helping people style their lives by the stars. This involves one-on-one consultations and a ton of writing. Tali serves up free daily, weekly, and monthly horoscopes on her website Astrostyle.com. She is also the official astrologer for Elle.com, Victoria’s Secret Pink, and MyLifetime.com. Her approach to astrology is to “bring the stars down to Earth,” and create useful, relatable, practical advice to help people navigate their lives on THIS planet.

Creating empowering women’s media has been a common thread in Tali’s writing from the very start. At age 18, she won Sassy magazine’s Reader Produced Issue contest and was flown to NYC to help create an issue of the legendary teen publication under the direct guidance of Jane Pratt. She returned to the University of Michigan later that year and created her own magazine, HUES, which was a multicultural women’s magazine that also focused on healthy body image for women.

While working on HUES, she was introduced to astrology. “I like understanding the psychological motivations behind people; what makes them tick. Astrology is an intriguing way to get into the subconscious aspect of our own personality and understand the deeper aspects of ourselves.” Taking that passion and using her history in magazines, she has been able to build this “accidental career” in which she’s flourished.

We’re pretty happy to have Tali and her adorable dachshund, Wendell, at Office Nomads. Make sure to say hi next time you are here!

One of the newest Nomads, Chelsea McClain, is a true Jill of all trades. Actually, she’d probably make Jack blush with inadequacy.  That’s really the reason she’s here, too.  Jacob put out the call that we wanted somebody to help the Nomads with their own work.  Chelsea had the skills and saw it as a great way to utilize them. She has started at Office Nomads as a sort of all-purpose helper.  Bookkeeping, project management, picking up mail, and many other tasks are right up her alley.

But her skills don’t stop there.  Chelsea spends a few days a week here but fills the rest of her time with three other jobs.  On Mondays you can find her working the front desk at Dockside Co-op, a medical marijuana dispensary in Fremont.  She only has fantastic things to say about working there, especially how professionally run it is.

A serious passion of Chelsea’s is burlesque which she produces and performs here in Seattle.  Right now she’s preparing for the Burlesque Hall of Fame Competition in Las Vegas June 2nd – 5th. It’s a sort of a “burlesque Olympics” into which she was accepted with an act that fuses burlesque and contortion.  She spent her younger years as a dancer, primarily in African and ballet, but was inspired after seeing a burlesque show and has focused on that for the last three years.

When she gets home, work is not completely over.  Chelsea also has a small business for special occasion desserts. She flies under the flag of Radical Cakes and fights to liberate us from the belief that cake from a box is good enough. For years she has been making cakes, cupcakes, and pies for weddings, birthdays and other occasions.  Maybe we can convince her to use the Nomads as cake testers…

So look out for Chelsea.  She’s the one with the bright red hair, often seen strolling into the office wearing a helmet that looks like a watermelon.  She’s eager to help out Nomads in need. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10-3 she’ll be here. You can also contact her at Chelsea@officenomads.com.

In the summer of 2010, Andy Hieb came into Office Nomads for a tour but was already exclaiming that he was ready to be a Resident. He just had to first move to Seattle from Brooklyn.

 

We often get folks who come in and are super excited and then are never heard from again. Andy was not one of those people. Sure enough, August 1st he was moving his computer and photos to his desk of choice. I’m not sure if who was more excited, him or us. He jumped right into things here at ON, happily joining member lunches and attending the range of workshops we have in the space, from patent law to bicycle commuting.

 

Office Nomads is Andy’s space to work as a web developer with his company, Dtek. He runs a boutique web development shop that builds WordPress and Drupal web sites for non-profits, commercial firms, and entrepreneurs.

 

Andy has just moved back to Seattle and is loving seeing the city with fresh eyes and seeing how it has changed over the years. Visiting the new Elliott Bay Books, discovering new films with SIFF and trying to find the closest thing to New York pizza are favorite activities. Soccer, though, seems to top the list as his son, Jonah, plays on a team, Andy also plays, and the Sounders have already won them

We’re pretty happy that Andy found us and are fairly certain that the feeling is mutual. Next time you’re in, you should make sure to say hi.

 

What do our members do? A whole lot of awesome.

In the past we have done our best to keep you all updated on the news from Office Nomads. You’ve heard about our neighborhood campaign to start another coworking space in Seattle, when we are lucky enough to score some great press, and when we make changes to our membership offerings.

Well, that’s fun and all, but it barely scratches the surface of the great stuff that happens within the walls of our Capitol Hill coworking space. So welcome to the first of (hopefully) many posts featuring projects and happenings from our members. They are a hard-working bunch, and are usually working on something awesome:

  • New part-time member Ryan Luce launched a free, comprehensive website that helps folks with Type 2 diabetes find clinical trials that are right for them. The site helps those who are interested in clinical trials sort through the huge number of available trials with ease, and find trials that are close to home. The website is called Corengi, and it’s pretty awesome.
  • Long-time member Ariel Stallings added a new website to her Offbeat Empire called Offbeat Home. It’s the newest gem in her crown of beautiful, fun, and useful websites for folks who are looking to navigate their lives a little differently than the norm. Check out the sweet yurt drawing on the home page – it’s my favorite!
  • Matt Davis is a local salesman for Rulon, a Florida-based company that manufactures and installs stunning acoustical wooden ceilings and walls. This week Rulon began producing these beautiful ceilings for the Legacy Emanuel Children’s Hospital in Portland OR. In just 4 months, the project will be done, and will hopefully have earned either a LEED gold or platinum certification. Go Matt!

  • In the realm of amazing things that don’t happen every day, member George Divoky recently heard from an actor who was playing a part inspired by his arctic bird research at the National Theatre in London. Yes, you read that right. George had no idea that his life’s work had inspired a playwright to base a couple of characters off of him in a play about climate change. But apparently, they did. So off to London George went to go watch himself (as portrayed by two different actors) on stage. You can read all about it (and I’d highly recommend it) at the Adventures in Climate Change blog.

Pretty neat, eh? Stay tuned for more updates from the goings-on here at Office Nomads!

If your bookshelf is looking light on engineering and computer science books then Andrea could be your hook up. She is ½ of the sales and marketing department for Morgan & Claypool, an academic publishing company. Andrea had been looking for work in publishing, museums, or education and this position within academic publishing fit the bill. “It’s the perfect combination,” she says with a smile.

Publishing is completely global and Morgan & Claypool is digital, so this is ideal.” Morgan & Claypool is often selling books in Australia, Germany, and many other countries. Andrea describes the main part of her job as pestering librarians and faculty members at institutions around the world. And there is also the all-important task of keeping Mike Jones, her coworker, in line. We are forever thankful for her for that.

When not hard at work, she’s an active participant here at Office Nomads. Andrea is often seen at our Open Houses and other events chatting with other Nomads. “I love the people here, truly. I have gotten to meet a lot of interesting folks from different strokes.” Andrea is one of those interesting folks with great stories of traveling abroad and always has fun stuff going on in her life. Also, she recently got married and her husband, Kent, is a welcome addition to ON. No, he’s not technically a Nomad but he’s a regular face at events and always one for a funny story. They live nearby in Capitol Hill with their two cats and one chatty bird. No, seriously. They have a bird.

Lisa couldn’t pick her favorite planet, much less a favorite solar system.  They were all fascinating in their own right and it was impossible to decide which one she would focus on for the rest of her career as an astronomer. It had been her dream, ever since she had learned about the possibility of alien life, to be an astronomer or, to be more exact, an alien hunter.  Unfortunately, such a career path required a specificity that she didn’t want.  Instead Lisa took her Astronomy degree from Cornell and went to UC Santa Cruz where they turn recovering scientists into journalists.

That is how we now find Lisa.  She is a science writer who educates the masses on new research in physics and astronomy in a manner that is interesting and accessible.  While at UC Santa Cruz she spent time interning at The Santa Cruz Sentinel, SLAC National Accelerator Lab and Wired.com. After graduating in 2009, she did some writing for New Scientist and Science News.

Now she has found her way to a new city and new job. “Right now, I think I am living the dream,” she admits.  “I just wanted to write about space for anybody, anywhere.  Just get it out there.”  Wired Science knew Lisa and her work and has picked her up as a full-time writer.   Now Wired.com features regular postings by Lisa.  If you see something regarding space on the website, good chance the byline has her name.

Lisa is an excellent addition to ON.  Collectively, we do a pretty good job of nerding-out over anything science or technology related.  It’s pretty neat to have someone here working for one to the biggest technology sites.  Add to that the fact that she likes board games, hiking and skiing and we’re over the moon for her.

Maybe it’s a bit of a flashback for Lisa and her summer at Johns Hopkins’ Center for Talented Youth. “A nerd camp based on 7th grade SATs,” Lisa explained.  “All the kids at the camp had an extra geeky side to them that wasn’t being expressed at home so this was a fun, safe space to be nerdy.”  Does that sound at all like Office Nomads to anyone else?

Lisa, we’re so glad you found us and are thrilled to have you on board as a Nomad!

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.
