Meet the NTEN Community
The NTEN Community is full of great folks. Here are just a few of them.

infoGroup Company. Triplex Interactive provides nonprofits with the
data they need to power their email marketing and social media
programs. Before joining Triplex Interactive, Jocelyn was Director of
Sales and Marketing for NPower Greater DC Region, a nonprofit which
provides technology consulting and IT support to hundreds of charitable

Eric started his technology work focused on sustainable internet strategies for grassroots human rights organizations internationally, working for a variety of organizations including Amnesty International, Human Rights First and Witness. As the founder and director of Leland Design, Eric focuses on strategic technology planning, website and database planning and development for progressive health and human services organizations, human rights and environmental advocacy groups both in the USA and internationally. Since Eric works with cash-strapped nonprofits, he considers the most fun part of his job finding advanced and cost-effective tools to solve their communications and information problems. He takes pride in helping nonprofits that have a great need for sophisticated yet low-cost technology systems, and no IT department to get the job done.
Earthjustice is a non-profit law firm that performs litigation and other services in support of our planet. The company slogan says it all: "Because the earth needs a good lawyer." As IT Director, Peter leads the IT Staff and sets the strategic direction for technology initiatives in support of the mission. These include deploying a global infrastructure that will seamlessly connect the firm's eight offices, which stretch from Honolulu to Tallahassee; supporting the litigation practice, fund development efforts, and communications strategies; and, in particular, enhancing the infrastructure to support shared knowledge and improved communication across all divisions.
Adam grew up near Nashville, TN, and graduated from the University of Tennessee with a B.A. in Rhetoric and Writing. After college, electoral politics took him to Connecticut, Oklahoma, back to Tennessee, and then to New Hampshire. After that, he settled in Hartford, CT, to work on nonprofit legislative campaigns; focusing on marriage for same-sex couples, gender identity and expression protections, various civil justice issues, and now, universal health care. Adam has always described himself as an "accidental techie," but is happy to have just landed a job that pays him for spending hours on Facebook and Twitter. When not creating advocacy campaigns, Adam enjoys reading about the American Revolution, listening to This American Life, playing with his dog, and tallying how many times his coworkers want to put "URGENT!!!" in their member emails.
Eric is an interactive marketing consultant at Northridge Interactive, specializing in Web Analytics, Organic Search Engine Optimization, and Pay-Per-Click Management. His interest in online marketing was sparked in 2001 while working for an Atlanta area web marketing firm where he learned the benefits of marketing to achieve concrete results. A results-driven Google Certified AdWords Professional, Eric has engaged in Adwords and Google Grants Management for a number of nonprofit clients while at Northridge Interactive. Eric contributes regularly to the Online Marketing Council and was recently elected to the position of Vice Chair of the Web Analytics committee. Eric began his career as a paratrooper in the U.S. Army -- but now the color of his parachute is "marketing". Eric is getting married this spring and hopes his wife will embrace his eclectic loves of practicing Wing Chun Kung Fu, wearing out his copy of Halo 3, and heavily consuming internet marketing reads. He hopes the salsa dancing will help in this regard.
