I've been a plant based/vegan eater for almost four year nows. I came into veganism because of health and environmental reasons. I currently work as the Program Officer for a Jewish/vegan nonprofit that focuses on ethical consumption, animal welfare, kosher veganism, environment and of course, education.
I love meeting other vegans, no matter the age and no matter how or why they came into veganism. I also look to cook (I used to bake vegan cookies for a kids bookstore/cafe in Santa Monica) and I love to eat...why not combine all of the above? I hope to meet new vegan friends! :)
