OUR TEAM

GojiGoji Berry

Chief Happiness Officer

What I do for you:

Firstly, how dare you? But if I must, as a yogini, I find myself often pondering life and the cycle it follows for all of us. We’re all interconnected. For example, when I see a squirrel happily scampering up a tree, a chain reaction begins in me that causes me to lose my ever loving mind. But then, you throw me a ball, and I’m like OMG! You see? Connections. Bottom line, I hold degrees in cuddling and belly rubs from UC BARKley and HOWLvard respectively, which makes me an expert in being the happiest being ever. I run a tight ship here, you’ll hear me bark loud and proud when you see me the first time but I offer tons kisses and snuggles to those that help my fellow furry-bottomed soldiers out on the field. Namaste.

Technology

What I do for you:

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.

Food

What I do for you:

I spend my time managing tasks, schedules, deadlines and maintaining processes to ensure you receive your favorite food features every day! When I’m not at my desk in the office, I’m drinking copious amounts of coffee, reading cliche teen romance novels, watching Gossip Girl or ordering a shot of unfiltered apple cider vinegar at the bar. I’m just trying to figure out how to navigate life as a vegan who also loves fashion and a good pair of boots!

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, One Green PlanetAISLING 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!

Jonathan Engels, One Green PlanetJONATHON 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.
