Jill FehrenbacherJILL FEHRENBACHER | Founder, Editor-in-Chief
Jill is the founder of Ecouterre, and the whole Inhabitat family of websites, as well as a LEED-AP eco designer and green design consultant. Educated at Brown University, where she received a B.A. in Art Semiotics, and Columbia, where she worked on a Masters in architecture, she currently resides in New York City, which so far has been good for her obsession with rooftop gardens and vegan junk food restaurants. Jill loves eco fashion and hates it when people dismiss clothing design as trivial matter, unworthy of serious conversation (people, you do wear clothes, right? ;) She's been profiled in Vogue, Domino and Paper magazines, as well as the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.
