What's your favorite food or dish?

Jeez…so many…..Well, I can make a mean browned onion & tempe with veggie coconut curry over a bed of red quinoa, or how about my famous vegan "chicken" with mushroom tarragon orange "cream" sauce over a bed of quinoa or millet…(the list goes on!)

How old are you?

…still in my 40's :-)

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

I stopped eating animals at the age of 28. Over the years, I knew deep down that I should go vegan but kept eating veggie cheese pizza's, etc., and now I realize more than ever: Let's face it, we're the only species that drinks another species milk. (What's wrong with this picture?! ;-) It's not only the edibles, however, that has lead me here. Vegans are more apt to be compassionate, kind, aware people and, being in Portland only a year and a half, I would like to make new friends of this high-frequency consciousness.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I enjoy hiking in this glorious PNW nature, laughing, pontificating on metaphysics and quantum physics, bike riding, skiing, traveling, live music, good movies, cooking delectable vegetarian dishes, etc., etc.
