Jill Fehrenbacher is the founder and publisher of Inhabitat.com and Inhabitots.com. Internet blogs devoted to tracking innovations in future-forward sustainable design. Inhabitat, started in 2005, is now the largest independently-owned 'green' blog on the internet, as well as the largest design and architecture site. The site's mission is summed up in the statement: GREEN DESIGN IS GOOD DESIGN, GOOD DESIGN IS GREEN DESIGN.

Though many of you will likely know Jill best for her work at Inhabitat, she has also recently launched a sister site called Inhabitots.com this past Summer. She says was inspired to create Inhabitots in preparation for the arrival of her first baby, and the site focuses on products for kids, babies, and parents.

In addition to being the mom to a 6 week old baby, small business owner running these two popular blogs, Jill is a freelance designer and green design consultant. She was educated at Brown University, where she received a B.A. in Art Semiiotics, Central St. Martins, where she received her M.A. in Design Studies, and Columbia University, where she studied architecture.
