Technology

My name is pronounced “seven”, now if that’s not awesome enough, then I can also tell you that I can code in seven languages, have seven meals a day, my workstation has seven screens and “Seven” is my favorite movie. But enough about me, right?! I am the guy who fixes problems that you didn’t know we had, in a way you don’t understand. I eat glitches for breakfast, battle code for lunch and deal with evils of 404 errors & slow loading times for dinner. I make the engine behind this monster-of-a-platform run smooth. I still have about 50 characters to go so here you go…Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, quam morbi, sed nunc. Vestibulum dictumst.

I'm an animal lover and a passionate vegan foodie. Going vegan was the best decision I ever made. Here at One Green Planet. I spend my time managing tasks, schedules, deadlines and maintaining processes to ensure you receive your favorite features and social content every day! It’s a tough job, filled with late-night vegan donut cravings and yearnings for beet burgers. But I’m here to ply you with amazing content that is kind to you, animals and the planet. When I'm not doing these things, I can be found reading a book or cuddling with my dog.

I have always been passionate about animals, the planet, writing, and of course vegan food! Eating a plant-based diet significantly improved my health, both physically and mentally, and has become one of my most valued causes. Thankfully, working at One Green Planet means I get to work on my passion everyday! So now I toil away sniffing out the most delicious, scrumtrulescent, mouthwatering, vegan recipes to bring to you.

News Writer

I got my Masters from Columbia University and have been a writer and animal rights advocate for over fifteen years, so when it comes to animals, I will leave no puppy un-cuddled! My job is to cover rescue stories, share cute animal videos and reports on plant-based trends and happenings! When I’m not at work, I can be found playing tons of board games, and being a gracious loser when I eventually get demolished.

I received by bachelor’s degree at SUNY New Paltz in Classical Music and Creative Writing, and now I am lucky to be writing about the thing I’m most passionate about. I like to refer to myself as a “food nerd,” whose appetite for health and nutrition blossomed after choosing a vegan lifestyle. When I am not bustling away as a content creator, you can find me tucked away in a good book, practicing yoga, or watching a true crime documentary.

AISLING CRONIN

Animals

I adore everything that creeps, crawls, slithers, trots, swims or flies. For every uplifting or harrowing animal-related story out there – wherever there is a reason to celebrate, or a reason to get up and help – I want to make sure you hear about it. I’m your animal police, if there is a creature who happens to be under threat because of human foolishness, I want to shout about it and get you all to do something about it. I consider it an honor to use my voice to help those who have none … and if I can do that while sighing over yet another adorable kitten video (hey, there can never be too many adorable kitten videos in this world, right?), all the better!

JONATHON ENGELS

Life

If you’ve ever wanted to be that person who grows stuff themselves, comes up with clever ways to reuse things 100 times overs or awes your friends by DIY-ing everything, I’m the guy to help you. I’m here to teach you about permaculture, upcycling and green gardening all while spitting out tips on hacks like Eminem spits lyrics. The best part is, you don’t even need to tell your roommate that you got that wicked cool idea for turning an old school CD rack into a lid holder for your pots and pans from me. Just say you came up with it on your own, I don’t need the credit. I’m a giver like that.
