Founder, Writer, Editor, Everything Else
Natalie Wilson graduated form the University of Pennsylvania in 2001 with two bachelors degrees: a Bachelor of Science in Economics and and a Bachelor of Applied Science in Systems Engineering and spent the next 10 years working in currency trading for some large banks in New York. In 2010, suffering from insomnia and sleep issues from the stresses of working on Wall Street, Natalie moved to Boise, Idaho and cultivated her interests in sleep hygiene. At the same time she became more environmentally conscious and saw Bamboo Bedding products as an ideal combination of the two interests. Once she started researching the issues, she found that there was a lot of contradictory and flat out inaccurate information from one website to the next. Trying to set the record straight and provide readers with accurate, up-to-date information was the genesis of BestBambooGuide.com!
The following are some of the sleep experts in the sleep and bamboo industry we have quoted, spoken with, or been especially influenced by. You'll find insights from these experts sprinkled through our articles and blog posts, and we wanted to specifically mention the most important figures whose research and opinions we relied upon most frequently to inform our articles.
Jeff has been writing about bedding and sleep issues on various websites for over 12 years since he got his start writing for sites like Wikihow and About.com. After several years of producing great content for sites that didn't seem to appreciate it, Jeff started looking for writing gigs for smaller, more-focused websites. He then teamed up with Natalie to start reviewing and writing some of the sleep-related content on BestBambooGuide, assisting with collecting user reviews and data across the whole range of bamboo bedding products. From bamboo mattresses, to bamboo duvet covers, and bamboo sheets, Jeff has probably read and analyzed well over 100,000 user reviews from different websites to figure out what issues were cropping up with each product the most frequently. From all of this effort, our articles and ratings emerge!
Originally from Dallas, Texas, James migrated to Boulder, Colorado after a series of odd jobs in Texas and Colorado. After taking some intense programming and web development courses, James is now working independently helping small sites such as BestBambooGuide turn their vision into successful, easy-to-use websites. He is also passionate about the BestBambooGuide project since working from home in front of a computer screen all day has led to any number of sleep hygiene related issues. Trying out new sleep promoting products such as "blue glasses" and various screen dimmers has given James an appreciation for the importance of good bedding in a proper sleep hygiene regimen.
Emily Crawford is a Montreal native who moved to Connecticut for university. Looking to get into sleep research, she worked in several labs and clinics in Connecticut before moving over to roles in marketing. She first started doing research on mattresses when she found herself living in a tiny apartment with her not-so-tiny dog who was a real bed hog. Her interest in finding ways to improve the quality of sleep that she was getting led her to marketing roles with mattress manufacturers. She helps us here at BestBambooGuide with our mattress research and figuring out which mattress brands are introducing new products and how we can best test the marketing claims of producers.
