Member Profile: Katie Davis-Sayles

It’s time to bring our blog back to life!  We couldn’t think of a better way to reconnect with y’all than to introduce you to some of the incredible individuals who call Office Nomads their coworking home. We hope these Q&As will be a way for you to glimpse into our coworking community and get a sense of how much awesome there is here.

With that, let us introduce you to the fabulous Katie Davis-Sayles – designer, educator, and all-around incredible person. Katie’s introduction to Office Nomads was unique – she came here on a second date with Jacob. We’ll let her tell you the rest!

What are you working on right now?

I am working a bedroom remodel, a bathroom remodel, various projects for a local stone mason/artist (stone table drawings, website design, marketing materials), and my own rebranding. Plus I’m putting together some business cards for a fantastic photographer that I know.

Tell us a story from your time at Office Nomads.

My first day at Office Nomads was my second date with my now husband. I sometimes (sort of) jokingly say that with Office Nomads, it was love at first sight. With Jacob, it took a few months.

What are you passionate about?

Design, teaching, art, houses and good food and wine.

What is one thing about you that most people don’t know?

My background is in theater and performing arts. I once worked for WCW (World Championship Wrestling). You know all of those impromptu fights that they have in hallways and dressing rooms and things? I hung the lights for those.

Why did you come to Office Nomads?

I was desperate for a place to work away from home.

Why did you stay?

I love the community. And the space. And Buckley.

Now Introducing…Buckley!

The next time you come into Office Nomads, make sure you make a beeline to Susan’s desk. You lift an eyebrow and ask me why. Well, it’s not her wit or her thoughtful commentary (although those are pretty great, too) that makes me suggest you stop by there, but more for Buckley.

Buckley is Susan’s 5-month-old black lab. He is a solid 35 pounds of cuteness. Now, don’t think of a stereotypical bouncing black lab when you picture this guy. Mellow is an excellent way to describe him. ‘Adorable’ works, too. He likes to laze about the office, taking full advantage of Office Nomad’s open napping policy. Usually he happily wanders up when called, plops down on his bottom and shows off his big brown eyes until people give in and scratch his head. He’s a pro and will reduce you in no time into one of those people whose voice jumps a couple octaves and makes funny faces as you pet him. Great entertainment is tossing a tennis ball for him and watching him prance and pounce his way to the ball until he scoops it up and trots back. A true lab, this one.

It’s easy to see that this is a budding puppy food model we have here. If that job doesn’t pan out then he is open to being a food tester, mainly for the meat industry. Young Buckley, or Buck if you’re comfortable, is a major outdoor enthusiast. He enjoys long walks along the waterfront and weekends at his country home in the North Cascades. This young stud is single but isn’t looking for anything serious. If you want to stop by and shower him with love for only a short period of time, he would be thrilled.

And that, everyone, is our new adorably fantastic Nomad. His full name is Sir Buckley Danger Dog, but you can call him Buckley.
