I've been vegan* for almost 5 years years after reading "Animal Liberation". I am a lecturer in Psychology at the University of Portsmouth but make frequent trips to London.

What's your state of veganness (i.e. how vegan are you)?

I'm actually an ostro or bivalvegan meaning I'm vegan with the exception of oysters and mussels. If you want to know why you can check out my blog at sentientist.org. Also I'm more interested in making veganism look attractive to others and eliminating the demand I create for animal products than focussing on purity, that's where I diverge from some other people.

Favourite foods?

quinoa, guacamole, lychee, curry with coconut milk, eggplant, popcorn tofu, bubble tea

Favourite London restaurants?

Itadaki Zen

What is the most common or silliest thing people ask you about not eating meat?

So, you don't eat anything cooked? That and pronouncing it VAY-gan.

What do you hope to get by coming to meetups?

Just eat some lovely food and chat with like-minded people

    'Experimental' psychologist - sounds a bit dangerous - ever had an experiment gone wrong and driven someone mad?! ;-)

    PS. If you haven't already, do check out Volentia.com

    Hi, just taking the VeganCampaigns Vegan Pledge, a month 'trial' which is due to finish this coming Saturday - hoping to continue with it though... might have to be vegetarian on occassions, ie. when eating out :-(

    I'd been vegetarian for 27 years prior to the Pledge, figured I'd better finally give veganism 'a go'! Most annoying thing I've found is the use of honey as a sweetener in lots of my favourite fruit and nut bars!

    I stand corrected. I'm going to go and get myself some. A complete protein hey! sounds too good to be true, got to be a catch somewhere. :-)

    can you honestly say hand on heart that you like quinoa? It even sounds horrible? :-)

    Hi Diana
    I'm sorry I missed meeting you at Tibits... Did you find a room? My housemate has just moved out and had I been awake and looked at the message board I would have gotten in touch much sooner... Hope to meet you at the next one! [masked]
