What's your favorite food or dish?

I love Greek food -- hummus plates with kalamata olives and warm pita bread while Paul could eat Chinese food all day every day.

How old are you?

36 and 51, respectively.

How long have you been and why are you a vegan or interested in becoming a vegan?

I've been vegan since 2005 and Paul has been vegan since 2000 (having gone veg in 1997). I went veg in 1992. Both of us are vegan for ethical reasons, believing that animals are not ours to eat, wear, etc.

What do you like to do in your free time?

We're both interested in history, are incorrigible bibliophiles (<3 perusing Powell's & hidden little neighborhood bookshops), enjoy: playing Scrabble up at Anna Banana's in St. John's, spending time with our fur-babies (3 cats, 1 dog, 1 bunny), etc.


My partner & I lead such busy work lives that we find find it challenging to step outside the box to meet fellow vegans. Once a year @ AR conference just isn't enough!

What Alexa is saying about this Meetup Group

To meet with others of like mind, and to connect over a more than worthy cause.
