Minimalism. It’s commonly been defined as stripping things down to the bare essentials. Often times, it involves peeling off all the decorative elements to expose the bare components. We see examples of minimalism in all areas of design, from 420 sq. foot apartments to one color paintings. But what about a minimalist video game? What…
I am a car guy with a passion for all things digital.
Day to day I own and operate Car Dorx, where we help various car dealerships look towards the future by integrating new communication mediums and modern operating practices into their stores.

We are a community that advances each member by strengthening the collective. Everyone contributes and benefits at their own level of participation.
As a member-run space, we are non-staffed and clean up after ourselves while looking out for each other. Fort Work members take the initiative to care for our collective space, welcome visitors, orient new members, start conversations, and host events.
We’re a present day salon providing a public space for community gatherings and encourage workers of any discipline to come work with us for a day!
We build trust by working together, early and often. We work together to brew coffee, organize events, brainstorm ideas, and incubate businesses by sharing resources, learning, and solutions.
We believe in the power of inclusion through transparency. It’s beneficial for all to grow through shared information and knowledge. The more knowledge, experience, and skills we pull together, the more we all gain.
We put this into practice by sitting at shared tables in an open space. We encourage discussions and BYO-anything (nothing hazardous or illegal please).
When you have the freedom to work wherever you want, why would you want to visit a place with rules, boundaries, or limitations?
We cannot encapsulate coworking into one compact sentence just as we cannot neatly define American with just one face.
Coworking embraces diversity in the backgrounds of its members’ talents, skills, education, training, experience levels, working styles, and desired hours of work.
Dallas Fort Work depends on no one but its members for success and growth. We don’t have investors, recruiters, or some other business entity sponsoring us for some ulterior motive.
We exist independently to support one another and as such we define sustainability as the ability to maintain ourselves without any outside source of help.
We believe strongly in the power of self-selection. There is no application process for Dallas Fort Work and all walks of life are welcome so long as they respect and don’t disturb the work of others.
Coworking spaces are comprised of people who choose to be here. As a self-selecting group, it’s important to leave the door open to anyone that wants in. This is because coworking is for everyone and we don’t want you to put on a show just to find a spot to work. Be who you are and you are welcome here.
