Jon and Elizabeth Roth
The Roths live in a small, northern Michigan town with their two daughters (ages 11 and 7), two dogs, two cats, and two goldfish. They drive two cars (a Dodge and a Mercury), and each drink two cups of coffee each morning. They consider themselves to be an average, middle class, Midwestern family that is generally "environmentally aware" but has not yet made any drastic changes in their lives to help save the planet.
Jon has worked as a web site developer for the past ten years with a group of techno-geeks at BrightBridge Studios. Prior to starting BrightBridge he was the associate publisher at Traverse, Northern Michigan's Magazine. In his spare time Jon has written a novel (currently seeking a publisher) about the French and Indian War, a graphic novel (currently being drawn by artist Pete Richard) about village life in Northern Michigan, and can often be found leading a very big Great Dane and very small Schnauzer on walks through the local woods.
Elizabeth worked as a law clerk for the Michigan Supreme Court for twelve years until she sustained a horseback riding accident two years ago. Prior to working for the court she was an attorney for Michigan Indian Legal Services. She studied law at the Northwestern School of Law, Lewis & Clark, in Portland Oregon and focused on environmental law.
