It’s time for us to introduce you to another one of our spectacular Office Nomads members: Bobby Watson! We are so fortunate to have this wonderful individual in our midst.
What are you working on right now?
I started working at Full Circle Insights in May as a senior software developer. Full Circle is a Salesforce partner that builds solutions to help marketing and sales understand the true value of their campaigns and responses.
What are you passionate about?
I’m pretty big into running. I’m not sure what I would do if I ever broke my leg or something… I would be completely lost! We have an Office Nomads Running Group that meets every other week that I love being a part of.
What is one thing about you that most people don’t know?
Most people probably don’t know that I’m the president & co-founder of an LLC – it sounds like a big, fancy gig but it really isn’t. My best friend from high school and I set up an LLC (Adams American Capital) a few years ago for investment funding. We’re finally just now getting started on it… maybe one day we’ll become millionaires. ☺
What brought you to Office Nomads?
I moved to Seattle in the summer of 2013, but kept my job in Rochester, NY. I knew that if I just worked from home with my cat every day, I would go nuts. So I sought out Office Nomads after I got settled in, and I’ve been around ever since.
Has anything surprised you about Office Nomads?
I think what’s so surprising to me is the great diversity in the space, as well as how quickly everybody here became more than just my coworkers – they became some of the first friends I had here in Seattle. Sure, there are a lot of us who are software engineers – but we also have several writers, lawyers, financial advisors, teachers, data scientists, ornithologists, … the list goes on and on!
Even now that Office Nomads is a 30+ minute bus commute away I can’t stop coming here. It’s not an office, it’s a community.
Bobby, we couldn’t agree more! Thanks for sharing your story with us.
You can find Bobby at Office Nomads a couple of days a week, and you can keep up with him on Twitter if that’s your jam.
Thanks as always to Marti Rhea for snapping photos of our photogenic members – you’re the best!
