Jeff McIntire-Strasburg is the founder and editor of sustainablog
, a co-founder of Green Options Media
(now Important Media
), and a former writer at Treehugger
Born and raised in the South (Florida and Louisiana), Jeff made his way out West in his early twenties to attend graduate school at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He has a Ph.D. in English, and spent 11 years in the classroom in positions ranging from graduate teaching assistant to assistant professor. After reading one too many freshman essays, he decided it was time for something new, and made a career switch into corporate writing and editing.
Jeff is married to Jan, and has three step-children. He has a dog, Zelda, and a cat, Freddy. He currently lives in St. Louis, Missouri, in a big old drafty historical home built in 1904. When not working (ha!), he enjoys walking the dog around the neighborhood (including nearby Tower Grove Park), laying down on the couch with a good mystery novel, working in his tiny little yard and garden, and frittering away the hours in a local coffee shop.
