David Kadavy's upbringing was anything but green. He grew up in a culdesac in the suburbs of Omaha, Nebraska; where golf was one of his main pasttimes, dangerous treks across busy intersections to grab candy at gas stations were his childhood's greatest acts of independence, and he never even rode a public bus until he was in college. It wasn't until he learned about sustainability while working at an architecture firm that green captured his imagination.
David's passions for technology and sustainable living drew him to California where he is Creative Services Manager at SustainLane and an active member of San Francisco's redhot Web 2.0 scene. As an internationally acclaimed designer and an experienced blogger, viral marketer, community builder, and midwesterner at heart, David strives to use technology to make engaging web experiences that will put green on the minds of average Americans.

A Lifelong vegetarian with knowledge encompassing cuisines ranging from vegetarian to vegan to macrobiotic, Tamar Kagan was raised with a passion for whole foods, influenced by a combination of Eastern European and Middle Eastern cuisine. She moved to San Francisco when she was five, and her palette expanded to many different cuisines. As soon as she was on her own in the kitchen, she taught herself how to prepare clean, healthy, easy, fun and affordable meals, inspired by many cultures. The key to being healthy is a balanced nutritious diet and a consistent exercise routine. Kagan's experience as the Assistant General Manager of one NYC’s most popular vegan/macrobiotic restaurants, Angelica’s Kitchen, and her background as a Spinning Instructor, taught her how to prepare super healthy, nutritious meals. And while she doesn’t eat it, she can also provide information on eating the right meat/fish/poultry, and how to prepare it.

James Kalin's company – Virtually Green – is building a network of Sustainable Commercial Urban Farm Incubator (SCUFI) programs in cities around the USA. A SCUFI program trains people to be sustainable commercial urban farmers, helps them get startup financing, find urban farm plots and secure an urban farm home to lease or own. A SCUFI trains urban farmers to generate extra profits by integrating farm operations into the grounds, structures, rooftops and systems of nearby urban buildings and businesses. A SCUFI can play an important role in reengineering cities to meet the challenges of climate change, peak oil and economic instability. Virtually Green also does case studies and design advice for green building and sustainable development projects, particularly LEED. Many of the case studies end up as online virtual tours of buildings and landscapes. Among other things, James is a LEED AP and an ex-ag extension agent.

He has been the plaintiff in several consumer lawsuits, most notably Kasky v. Nike. This lawsuit which received extensive national (Fortune Magazine, NY Times, PBS/NPR) and international (Financial Times, the Economist) coverage resulted in a decision affirming that corporations do not have a right to lie and do not have the same First Amendment protections as people do. In other words, they are not persons. Kasky v. Nike is now a business and law school textbook case and has transformed the way corporations can communicate with the public.
At seven years old, Kat Nguyen (stage name: Under Kat) picked up her fathers $20 dollar guitar he acquired in Mexico as a young man. Although it was old, damaged, and out of tune, from the battered instrument birthed a world of possibility that began the first time her tender fingers plucked their very first string. Awaking something in her, Kat began her voyage down a new found enigma of adventure and mystery MUSIC.
Hit with this 10ton freight train of unexpected passion and inspiration, Kat was possessed with a hunger to learn and master this instrument as quickly as possible so that in time, she could hone it to express and share a story of her own. Following her father everywhere, she had him teach her what he could, but being self taught himself, it wasnt long before the grasshopper had surpassed her master.
At the age of 11, proving that she was serious about her talent, Kat was bequeathed with a guitar just for her and slowly, but surely, she evolved from an insecure little novice, unsure of her ability and sound, to an incredibly polished composer, with a voice her very own. By the time she was a teenager, she was coaxing melodies and songs. Songs that sprung from the tortures of understanding her temperamental human existence, that of which was sometimes beautiful, and sometimes cruel.
Currently Kat is in school as a music major, pursuing her passion over a safe and conventional path spending most of her energy finishing her first album, entirely self produced, and recorded, mostly in the middle of the night in the quiet corners of her bedroom. Much of Kats music is an outlet for her struggles as a young female Asian American queer coming to terms with life, society, love, politics and what she sees as the destruction of the Earth and all its creatures. Refusing to be pigeon holed in life as well as in music, her style, like her voice, can be described as a dabble in a little bit of everything: folk, indie, experimental, electronic, and much much more that has yet to be created.
