Meet the team.
Hello there. We are pleased to meet you! We may be a little quirky and weird, but we are here to make things easy for you.
A few quick things before you get into the deep stuff:
Sean hates business cards, don’t give him one. Meg is a Steeler’s fan and Julia’s Instagram story voice is oddly different than her normal voice. Jen’s most irrational fear is Komodo dragons. Brittany has an irrational fear of birds… And Garrett’s favorite weather is beanie weather.
Garrett Tichy is the Founder and Owner of Hygge Coworking and Creator of @WeLoveCLT. A strong advocate for Charlotte, Tichy is well-known for his natural ability to build diverse and inclusive communities of professionals – both online and in-person – who appreciate and thrive on the power of connection to elevate an initiative, a workplace and a city.
Originally from New York, Tichy lives in the Charlotte area with his wife, Jennie, and daughter, Olivia.
Chief Strategy Officer
Brittany moved to Charlotte in 2015 with a passion to impact the community she lives in. Brittany is here to take Hygge to the next level by bringing more programming and partnerships to the table. With her background in non-profit development and events, she brings a whole new perspective to growing this coworking community. Brittany keeps herself busy reading, running, and spending time with her husband Miller and their dog, Crash. Brittany’s favorite thing to spend time doing is talking to and learning from members who share excitement for the future of Charlotte!
All Things Meeting Space
Jennifer Bishop is our resident handles all the non-member relations person/officer/guru. If you need to book a meeting space at Hygge, she is your girl. Jennifer moved to Charlotte before it was cool from Panama City Beach, FL. She is the owner of J. Leigh Events, where she has planned a variety of events including birthday parties, boutique shopping events, and grand opening celebrations. Jennifer loves seeing an event vision come to life and watching people enjoy themselves.
When Jennifer isn’t at Hygge or planning the next big event you can find her somewhere in Charlotte taking photos of her food.
Sean is Cofounder and Developer at smpl. With a degree in mechanical engineering, and a background in sales, he somehow found himself writing code for a coworking software company. When he isn’t working, you’ll find him riding his bike, reluctantly going for a run, or trying to tell flat-earthers about calculus.
Writer / Content Strategy
Meg Seitz is the Founder & Managing Creative Partner at toth shop, a content creation & strategy agency that thrives from Hygge’s Third Ward location. An OG member, Seitz joined Hygge the first week it opened back in November 2015. Her business doubled in size the year she committed to coworking.
In 2016, she and Julia Murray teamed up to write about and photograph 45 members of the Hygge community. Her biggest takeaway from over 1,750 minutes of interviews with Hygge members? Entrepreneurship is the toughest game out there; surround yourself with the weird and wild people who understand that. It’ll be a hell of a lot more fun.
Photographer / Content Strategy
Julia Murray launched Julia Fay Photography as a side hustle to make a buck during her sophomore year of college. Fast forward five years – she’s photographed over 70 weddings across North and South Carolina and helped hundreds of small business owners stand out with unique, visual content.
As a Flex member, Murray is the quintessential Hygge hopper, bouncing between any and all Hygge locations. The highlights of her days include when someone else makes the coffee and working on the weekly Hygge blog with creative partner in crime, Meg Seitz.
