Our coworking space in historic downtown Felton has quite the past. This particular location holds a special place in the history of our company as the first-ever Satellite Workplace, opening its doors in 2009, before we even knew the term “coworking.”
Built in 1893, the building is the 2nd oldest in the town and has seen many incarnations over the years. It started its life as the Alcazar Dance Hall in the early days of the town, moving through tire store, appliance store, grocery store, and, for about 40 years, various banks.
The building has grown. Our “quiet room” and breakroom were once a driveway leading to the Ice House, before people had electric refrigeration. When we modernized our event space, we uncovered beautiful hand-floated glass windows that no one knew existed. Above the dropped ceiling, we found a wooden sign proclaiming, “Roy’s Market. Meat 5 cents!”
The transformation of this space into a modern, coworking space still fills us with pride. When the power’s down in town, our generator allows people to work. When people in the outlying areas lose satellite dish internet for Zoom calls, they can come here for the fiber we were able to bring in.
This is why we do what we do: allowing people in small towns to connect with each other, while working virtually anywhere in the world! Satellite Workplaces is truly a labor of love.

I live and breathe coworking these days, and the greatest part of that is meeting and chatting with our wonderful members. You’re all doing such exciting things!
I’ve lived in the Santa Cruz Mountains for many years, raising my four kids here. Over time, though, I’ve gone through a lot of iterations: living in England for three years (two kids born there); living in West Virginia for eight years with no running water, growing most of our food (two more kids); starting a technology business and growing its two niche products to 90% of the world market before selling to a Fortune 1000 business; and in the middle, getting degrees in Economics and Public Policy.
You may notice the software that is in the background of everything you do at the Satellite: Deskworks. That’s the main thing I work on these days, making it easier for people to create the workplace of the future. A future in which people can work anywhere in the world virtually while connecting in their chosen community, avoiding commutes and the resultant CO2 emissions, working closer to their kids, and generally improving their quality of life.
That’s why I’m here.
