I'm Michael, a full-time student, currently finishing my final year of petroleum engineer. Vegan 13 years for ethical/moral reasons. Work out regularly, and just a genuine down to earth guy with strong values.

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

I’m a vegan for moral reasons. I don't believe veganism is a personal choice, but a moral obligation. I also try to avoid vegetable oil (palm oil) as it's contributing needlessly to the extinction of one of our evolutionary relatives, the orangutans, a vegan animal just like us.

Favourite foods?

Vegan vanilla alpro/provamel yogurt with blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, sprinkled with linwood's ground up seeds.

Favourite London restaurants?

Vantra in Tottenham Court Road

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

Eating meat is the natural order of things, blah blah blah

What do you hope to get by coming to meetups?

Just genuine friends, maybe someone special if I'm lucky and there is a sincere connection. I'm not keen on the socials as I've found them quite unfriendly and full of little cliques. If you like to get to know me and hangout etc, just give me a text on 07503 038 838 or whatsapp me. Don't do facebook anymore, trivializes friendships imo

    Hi Michael,

    Would like to introduce you to a new meetup group. One that may or may not be the kind you want to join. But the only way you'll know will be by reading more about it. http://www.meetup.com/Carpe-Diem-LCA/­­ I have already organised a few meetups on it. Most are free. Have a look and make a choice. Thanks, Jen

    Hello! I've been vegan for about 8 months.. I had a vegan friend and I though she was crazy! I could not understand why she didn't consume any animal products.. That's why I decided to research a little bit about it.. And that was enough to make me realise all the pain I was causing.. Yeah, I heard about the festival! I might go there, but I'm not sure If I'll be able to go yet..

    Hello, and thanks for the warm welcome! Tbh I haven't taken the vegan plunge yet because I'm a little too comfortable in my current lifestyle, and make amends by buying items from trustworthy sources whenever I can. I've had problems with vitamin deficiency too, so I want to explore veganism a little at a time for starters :) I'm not yet used to all the amazing opportunities here in London yet either :) He is not particularly interested in going veg unfortunately, but he likes to keep healthy!
