Ron felt as if working from home was working for him although it also felt like it was pulling him in two directions. His work as Lead Game Designer for Ridiculous Software, Inc. had him focused on the creation of new applications for Sidekick phones and IPhones. It had him at his computer designing and then writing code for different applications. At the same time he was always aware of his wife working as a stay-at-home mom with their one-year-old daughter, Addison, who was also in the house. His fingers would be typing but his mind was aware of laughter floating in from the other room and he wanted to be there to play. If she cried, he wanted to be there to comfort her. Working at home was not working at all.
Ron found Office Nomads and, with it, a place where he could work with less distraction. Before, he said, “…my one-year-old daughter did not understand why Daddy could not play right now.” Now, he goes home in the evening and can focus on his family.
An additional perk to spending 9-5 at Office Nomads is that Ron has found a great mix of people who can be fantastic resources. He sits in a cluster with two other Nomads in a similar industry. Also, when he has questions about topics such as web development, there is usually somebody in the space who can help him. “These are committed people,” Ron explained. “They have everything together.” He finds that that helps him and makes him love this space even more.
His wife and daughter love Office Nomads, too. Addison loves to run around and play with Cortez, one of the resident pooches, when they come in to check on Ron. The whole family comes out to the open houses to catch up with the other Nomads and just have fun. As a whole, the Theis family loves Office Nomads which is fine by us because we love them, too!
