Brkfree is a call to live well. It is a conversation on human experience and physical systems. Turns out, you can have your cake and eat it too. I explain a little about how that works here. It all comes down to intent and design. It’s your call.
I like that idea because it works, and because it’s convenient: who doesn’t want to have a damn good time while doing good?
Who are we?
We’re me – Peter Croce.
I grew up in the best small town on this blue-green dot: DeLand, Florida, USA. I have some amazingly brilliant family and friends both there and around the globe who continually inspire me.
I now live in Portland, Oregon and work in an AmeriCorps in nearby Vancouver, Washington. I believe strongly in the power of business to solve social and environmental problems; I believe in the carrot over the stick. My current position is with a program that does environmental verification for businesses — basically, we give the guys who are doing good things publicity, networking, and educational opportunities while continuously helping them do better. I chose the position because I believe strongly in the power of another business certification program, B Corporation.
I studied psychology and criminology at the University of Florida, then decided not to go to law school because I believe business has far more leverage to create substantive solutions by real people and, therefore, for real people. I closely follow methods of achieving more abundant, benevolent systems, processes, and structures, like the inspiring field of biomimicry. Brkfree is a conversation centered on doing good through empathetic and innovative intent and design — it’s a fulfilling now as a method of designing and celebrating an abundant tomorrow.
I know we can do exponentially more together than we could ever do alone. So let’s talk.
“Good communication is just as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after.”
