I design and build work spaces where creatives flourish...
Job Director, Think Tank Coworking / Think Tank Coworking
Lives In In the West of Portland
Here's a little story:
I once made business cards that read: "Pat Roche, General Specialist"... It's been a while since I made use of that pithy (if not pretentious) title, but the idea holds: Think Tank Coworking has become a vehicle for cultivating a diverse social scene where talented people converge and ideate.
Come see what we're doing here... especially if you've got big ideas and want to help shape this brilliant little city.
Why did you choose Portland? That's right. I chose Portland. I could have lived anywhere. Three years ago I was footloose and fancy free! This little gem by the sea called to me. It's brimming with some of the most collaborative and energetic people I've ever met. There is a collective zeitgeist here... It's as though everyone has this fanciful idea that if we engage with this place and its people, we can become stewards of the city. We can shape the future of this place and make it a shining example of what motivated, conscientious communities can achieve. ... Oh, and there's this beautiful bay to look at EVERY DAY! ... Right, I should say something about the food... Actually, forget the food. There's fountains of beer and coffee at every corner... almost literally.
Life is a colorful palette, giving a creative sixth sense to looking at the world around us.
I like creating images, telling stories, eating desserts, and helping people along the way. I also like boats.
