ABOUT Robert Kropp
Robert Kropp

In July of 2016, I left Tampa, Florida, to go on a life journey exploring coworking spaces around the world. I started this coworking exploration to experience, first hand, the management and culture variations in different offices and to learn how each community’s culture is created and maintained. So far I have worked remotely in 16 states, 2 provinces, 3 countries, and over 30 coworking spaces. Get in touch with Robert at [email protected]
