Where We Don’t Work: Our Favorite Spots to Take a Break in Michigan, NYC, and WisconsinBy Mayela Rodriguez
July 26, 2021
Twice a month we share the art studios and creative spaces of our Listings Project community members. In this two-part Where We Work spin-off, we’re taking a small break from sharing spaces devoted to productivity to share how our team members like to take a moment for themselves.
A Musical Porch in Ann Arbor, Michigan
Scott Trudeau, our CTO, is responsible for all of the technology that keeps Listings Project running & growing.
“When the weather allows, I like to sit on our front porch with a beverage and an instrument to relax in the evening to enjoy being outside and catch up with any neighbors that pass by.” - Scott Trudeau
A Moment to Recharge on the Shores of NYC
Clare DiBella is our Administrative and Community Manager. She offers customer support rooted in empathy, corresponds with listers on an individual basis and helps vet listings. She also takes care of the internal operations of Listings Project.
“I’m a year-long beach lover. With little convincing or planning, I will fit a trip to the shore into any weekend or even at dawn before a work day. (Bagels at the beach are the best!) It’s my favorite place to not work. I used to live in a place that was sunny nearly every day, so the amount of sky at NYC beaches recharges my solar batteries. My favorite beach trip: this past winter I did a long weekend at the shore and got to know the winter ocean in all her blustery glory.” - Clare DiBella
A Barn in Rural Wisconsin
Emma McAleavy, our Growth Editor, works to nurture our community by creating and promoting stories about listers and Listings Project.
“The place where I am most grounded and present is the barn where I ride in rural Wisconsin. I do a kind of riding called natural horsemanship that focuses on harmony with the horse, and somatic awareness of what is going for both you and the horse. I returned to riding during the pandemic as a way to get out of the house once in a while. Now I find it’s the best part of my week and a chance to connect with nature, the horses, and myself.” - Emma McAleavy
Dozens of artists find and share art studio spaces every week on Listings Project. These artists are the lifeblood of our communities, keeping us connected to and engaged with the things that matter most. In our Where We Work series, we showcase some of these art studios.
