my story

 

As a science-loving, practical, liberal, atheist, going vegan turned my whole world upside down.

When I went vegan for ethical reasons, and improved my health so incredibly, it made me realize that the mainstream, conventional knowledge isn’t the be-all, end-all of everything.  In fact, maybe these hippies knew a thing or two more, and I should learn more about what I don’t know.

There is so much to learn about food, health, wellness, and spiritual practices than what is "common knowledge," and it is my intention to bring “fringe” and “alternative” things that work to the mainstream.  It made me mad to know that my doctors treated my symptoms, when more alternative forms of medicine actually found me some cures. And now I want to share everything I know so that effective treatments are mainstreamed.

As a foodie who has worked at several cooking schools, I love to always be learning more about vegan food, restaurants, and cooking, and seek to share it with more people who can benefit from the information.  Not only is going vegan one of the best things you can possibly do for yourself, your loved ones, the animals, and the environment, but it is also fun, easy, and there are countless types of foods and cuisines.  In fact, I eat better food now than I ever have.

As an animal lover, I believe in a world in which animals are treated as the friends they are.  Beyond not eating them for the sake of our health, the environment, and their own autonomy, I believe in a future in which we engage in respectful, heart-warming interactions with animals, as I believe we were meant to be.

I so look forward to working with you to usher in an improved world that values health, happiness, and joy above all!
