Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from nature.”– Eric Corey Freed

 

Anna Rosemann and Eric Corey Freed at GreenBuild San Francisco 201

As the saying goes, great businesses are not built by extraordinary people but by ordinary people doing extraordinary things.

This is why we created an ECOPRENEUR, Proust-like questionnaire that will give you a better (sometimes funny) understanding of what makes these people tick and show you a side of them that you wouldn’t normally get to see at a conference/class/etc.

So I thought while attending GREENBUILD this year in San Francisco, who better to interview than my friend, the hilarious, sometimes controversial, and always inappropriate – organicARCHITECT Eric Corey Freed, enjoy!
