Years Working on WordPress
Cups of Mate
I've been in the sustainability world for many years, helping build gardens, bee keeping, teaching about (and installing) water harvesting systems, all while incorporating as many permaculture principles as possible.
Been working with computers for even longer. It started when I got my first computer, remember Windows 95? My interest on all things internet quickly escalated to, among other things, setting up web and email servers from scratch. Then in 2008 I switched gears and started using, and fell in love with, WordPress. I like it because it's a great tool to, as the creators put it, "democratize publishing".
While attending conferences (or parties), I would often speak with my eco peers about their sustainable enterprises, often noting how they struggled with the technological side of keeping their websites running smoothly. After enough of these interactions, I started putting my techie skills to help maintain these organizations' websites and that's how Ecotechie was born.
