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 She is also the official astrologer for, Victoria’s Secret Pink,

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!

Membership Type: Part-Time 15

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

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

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.

“The real thing I want to do is

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 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 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.

Sadly, people don’t often associate the word “fun” with their jobs. We spend

at least 40 hours a week working yet people don’t often jump up and excitedly tell you about how enjoyable their work is. Tatyana wants to change that.

Tatyana says that she has worked with all sorts of companies and found herself observing the people around her and wondering, “Why are people going to a job and not liking it? Why are they accepting that?”

She found that she loved working with people to help them express themselves. Following a contract position at Microsoft in which she tried to bring more fun into the workplace while coaching there, she entered a coach training program and became certified. Tatyana stepped back out into the workforce with her own business, Everyday Creative, and with the goal of helping people put their true creative selves into their jobs.

Well, actually, Tatyana does more than that. First and foremost, she is a writer and has been a writing coach. Now she is a coach for professionals who are stuck, in a rut, and burnt out. “I help them tap into their creative resources and become more engaged and start down the path to work they would love to do.” She knows that we are all creative beings, “we just have our own styles.” For her, the work she does is “about people loving their work and having fun with their work, on their own and with others.”

If you’ve had a conversation with Tatyana, it’s obvious that her line of work suits her. She lights up when talking about it and was more than excited to share her work at Office nomads in the form of a workshop entitled “The Fun Experiment”. To say the least, we are really excited to see how she can inspire us.

Besides spending her working hours inspiring people, Tatyana loves to get out and be active. She loves to swim and most mornings can be found with her Masters Swim group. Trail running is also a favorite activity which allows her “inner Pocahontas” to shine. With a 50K run on her resume, she adds to the ranks of super athletes in-house. At the same time, she shares the passion for travel that many have at Office Nomads. Past trips to Spain and Ireland left her with wonderful memories and have inspired her to travel more.

Next time you are in Office Nomads, you should make a point to seek out Tatyana for, at the very least, a little inspiration. Together we are all going to find some fun in our work with her on Tuesday, June 29th and you should definitely make a point to stop by.

Holly makes it to Office Nomads about once a week to be surrounded by a community of like-minded folks. She will carpool in the 45 minutes from Maple Valley with her boyfriend, Troy, so as to take advantage of the HOV. Then she settles in at ON while he’s off to OR. Talking to Holly, it is a bit of a surprise to learn that she lives out in Maple Valley as she exudes the urban green lifestyle many of the folks of Seattle lead. Instead, she’s a country girl, well, a displaced city girl in the country.

Originally, Holly hails from Portland but left there to work in China for 8 years in the manufacturing capitol of the world. “I wasn’t living healthy there and my body wasn’t handling it well.” She returned stateside, back to Portland before meeting a lovely man who lived in Maple Valley and, so, she moved up there. Such a shift from a city of 13 million to a town of 20,000 can be hard. “People drive to their mailboxes!” That does sound like the country. Although living so far from Capitol Hill, Holly is hooked and loves to come to ON on days when there is yoga. “I like a place where I can do yoga and there are ‘Your Mom’ jokes.” She is lending a helping hand to Sustainable Capitol Hill by giving them some worms for their worm bin projects. “If there was a Sustainable Maple Valley, I’d be involved.”

Life brought Holly back to the states where she continues to do similar work as she did abroad. “The company I work for works with brands and their importers to help their manufacturing partners, factories or an agent meet the requirements of local labor law in China…For example, let’s say, a women’s clothing brand is our client. We do classroom training for all their suppliers. We also get a select group of their select manufacturing partners and we do training specific to them to help them build compliance capacity. And, we work directly with individual factories to help them meet requirements of the local labor law.” Turns out, Chinese labor laws are actually stricter that US laws so Holly and the consulting firm for whom she works, advise the companies and factories as to what can be done and what needs to be done so the partnership is beneficial for all.

Her job sounds like it takes a lot so she knows how to have fun. Holly loves to mountain bike, and the family is a big fan of going bike camping. With 3 kids in the house, life is busy and it sounds like it’s pretty fun. “My daughter is a rockin’ guitarist. “ Holly gets a proud look on her face, “She’s learning

With her life full of family, music, yoga, and bikes, it’s easy to understand how Holly always is buzzing with positive energy. We love having her at Office Nomads and can’t wait for the next Wednesday when we see her again!

We’ve started seeing Jacob at Office Nomads a lot more. In the past he had perfected the juggling act of a full time job elsewhere in the city and being a co-owner of Office Nomads. It was all fairly impressive. But January saw an end to the back and forth and he has taken up at Office Nomads full time. “How cool is it that I can walk away from 15 years in software and have this community around me? I didn’t even bat an eye about it,” he said. When Office Nomads started in 2007, building a community he could count on was not the plan. “[Starting Office Nomads] seemed like the right thing to do. I just wanted to jump into a big project I believed in.”

Jacob is all about big projects, and that is one of the reasons we love having him around. Big ideas come to him and he strolls to the front and informs us he wants to build a Wall of Achievement, tear down the wall in the Green Room, install new lighting, make a Big Idea Board, or make a trebuchet out of office supplies. His great energy inspires the rest of us and, just maybe, we’ll harness all of it and take down that big green wall.

Jacob is a bit of a Swiss Army Knife of talents. No tech problem is too big for him. Every construction or maintenance project is something he can easily tackle, as is evidence by his awesome house. Apparently he has ‘mad yo-yo skills’ and holds Steve Brown up as his hero. At the same time, he has mastered the title of Nomad. Starting at the age of 17

with a trip to Japan, he has hopped around to all different parts of the world. Most recently he found himself in Brazil for two weeks enjoy sun and paradise while the rest of us put on our rain jackets and galoshes to fight the Seattle rain.
