About Me and My Work

What kinds of projects, tasks, or challenges do you typically partner with nonprofits on?

* Information security improvement
* Strategic technology planning
* Technology and operations staffing advisement, including recruitment and hiring processes
* Vendor evaluation and selection

Why would someone choose to work with you?
Information Ecology brings together social justice values and technical chops; our work is tempered by whole-systems sensibilities, rooted in years of alliance with grassroots and direct action organizations, forged in classrooms and datacenters, and enriched by time spent studying permaculture design and meditation.

We believe that when it comes to organizational technology, it's not the tools that matter most to success. Instead, it's about everything that surrounds the tech: clarity on the outcomes you need, thoughtful design and documentation of the processes that your tools support, adequate time in staff workplans for training and practice, buy-in and modeling from leadership, and careful planning and budgeting,

We are committed to helping all organizations regardless of size, budget, or technology experience to raise the overall capacity of the social justice sector. To that end we offer a sliding scale and have an ever-growing set of resources that we make freely available (https://iecology.org/resources/).
