WORKSPACES: Will Reppun

20131014_141421

Will Reppun
BoxJelly member since: March 2013
Position/Title: Senior Developer
Company: Outside Intelligence

Meet BoxJelly member Will Reppun. He’s currently jelly-ing in Istanbul, so before he went off into the world, we wanted to catch up with him through our new blog series: WORKSPACES.

What do you enjoy most about coworking at the BoxJelly? One of the big stigmas about working remotely is that you end up talking to yourself and living in your underwear with a beard that doubles as a napkin.  The BoxJelly keeps me using real napkins. The cloth kind. Lux.

Fill in the blank: “When I’m not working at the BoxJelly, I’m ____.”
Hiking.  Or sailing.  Sometimes camping.  Probably sailing though.  Or out at my uncles’ farm.

Favorite item on your desk:  My desk is lame.  Right now I have a computer, a Starbucks iced coffee filled with water (+1 re-use), a pair of sunglasses that I found in the middle of a highway in Colorado (they still had the price sticker on them — $5!), a whole bunch of change that someone stacked neatly when I was gone (and which I promptly knocked over), a monitor, Stephen King’s “11/22/63” (not a good book, but an excellent monitor stand), and a mostly full BoxJelly notebook.  The notebook.  That’s my favorite.  Stylish and useful.

20131014_141335

Ah yes, stylish and useful; just like the BoxJelly. In the upcoming months, you mentioned a stay/work-cation in Istanbul; cheers to you! Could you tell us a little more about what you’ll be doing, and how you ended up going to Istanbul?
The company I work for is based in Toronto.  Whether I’m in Honolulu or Istanbul, it’s all the same to them.  I think.  They haven’t complained about it yet.  But they wouldn’t like if I took 2 months off work to go travel, so instead I’m going to head over there with my girlfriend, and work while I’m there. That’s one of my favorite parts about the BoxJelly life — work wherever you want to.  Some days I work from home.  Some days I work from the North Shore.  I’ve worked while traveling in New York.  This is just another (rather drastic) extension of that.  And working on the trip makes it more financially feasible — instead of burning through the cash reserves I hope to at least break even.  Before taxes.  And I get to live in Istanbul.  And maybe Morocco for a month. Super excited.

We’re excited for you too Will!

** Meet the BoxJelly Interns
We are grateful to have some awesome interns working interns with us this summer to help us build a better BoxJelly community. Let’s meet them!

Britney

Britney

Aloha everyone, my name is Britney Taamu-Miyashiro. After graduating from Hanover College in 2012 I recently returned home to Honolulu, looking to make Hawaii a better place to work and live. My major is in sociology, and is complimented with a business concentration, lending to my primary interests in social innovation and place-making. This summer, I will be at George Mason University’s Social Innovation Program, attending their 5-week social entrepreneurship intensive. During June and July, you’ll be able to follow my summer journey on our site’s blog! The segment will feature other coworking spaces as I Jelly my way across the Midwest and East Coast. It has already been an inspirational and enriching experience working amongst you all. Keep up all the great (co)work! 

Fabian Fabian

Aloha. My name is Fabian Lewis, and I am an intern at BoxJelly. I am a veteran of the United States Army and recently was employed as a X-ray technologist at Tripler Army Medical Center. I am currently pursuing my Masters in Business Administration at Chaminade University, and I am a member of my school’s Hogan Entrepreneurial Program. I have lived in Hawaii for 6 years, as well as various places in Europe and the mainland. My hobbies include writing, training at UFC gym, and playing on my Xbox. I am here to help and learn all that I can, so please feel free to speak to me if you need anything.

Sonny

Sonny

Aloha fellow BoxJelly fanatics, I’m Bernardo Equila, but you may call me Sonny instead! I’m currently a senior at Chaminade University, pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting. I’m also a part of my school’s Hogan Entrepreneurial program. With my background, I hope to become a well-rounded Certified Public Accountant (CPA). Besides my career aspirations, I enjoy trying new cuisines, doodling, listening to live music, planning events, hiking, and body boarding. I am passionate about anything creative, social, or active. The BoxJelly has granted me the opportunity to meet people with similar passions, allowing me to thrive among brilliant minds.

** Box Jelly Member Profiles

Just another friendly reminder that this week our BoxJelly interns will be coming around to ask you a few quick questions about you and what you do, as well as take a photograph of you.
As part of a bigger initiative to update and redesign the BoxJelly website, we will be including profiles of our community members. This is not mandatory, if you do not wish to have your profile published on the BoxJelly website.

Thanks in advance for your participation.

** Take a Beer, Leave a Dollar

As you all have probably noticed, there is keg of cold and delicious locally brewed beer from Hawaiian Islands Brewing Company in the kitchen. It’s there for all members of the BoxJelly community to enjoy. HOWEVER, The BoxJelly does pay for the kegs and we do ask that you please donate $1.00 each time you dispense a glass of this frothy libation, so that we can keep the beer here.

Mahalo for your cooperation
