Pine And Me

Livelihood Technology builds websites, e-commerce stores, databases, and portfolios for businesses in Northern California and beyond. Its founder and sole proprietor, Will Emerson, practices his craft from the hills above Laytonville in Mendocino County, CA. He is shown above at Ebbets Pass in the Sierras at 9000ft.

Will says, " I graduated from UC Berkeley in 1973 with a degree in architecture and went to work at a drafting table. I soon tired of office work and the city. My wife Kat and I moved to Woodland, CA while she completed her Design degree at UC Davis. We got a bad case of "land fever" and joined the Back to the Land movement. We bought 40 acres of timber, brush, and grass in a remote corner of Mendocino County. With a lot of sweat equity, we built a homestead, raised a family, and became part of a wonderful unintentional community where we remain today. After leaving a desk job to work outside with my hands, building and gardening, I was lured back into technical work in the early 1990's by the promise of solar electricity and alternative energy. From there to the awakening desktop computer industry. I came full circle and and was once again working at a desk. From being a home architect to a software architect was a smooth but unexpected transition and my design skills helped  me connect my clients' needs to the the right technology. As computers and the internet have evolved, I have worked hard to stay up to date with my skills and to find new and better ways to help my clients solve their business and technology problems. At the same time, I try to balance my life by getting outside in nature as much as possible and taking photographs of the world around me while exploring my big backyard in this beautiful corner of the world."
