How did you hear about the San Diego Vegans?

Might have done a search on Meetup.

What motivated you to join this MeetUp group?

Interested in building relationships with conscious and kind people.

If you had to choose, which of these do you care the most about? Animal welfare, your health, the planet, or humanitarian efforts?

My health. Animal welfare is right behind.

How would you label yourself when it comes to lifestyle and nutrition? (Vegan, vegetarian, plant-based foodie, vegan-curious, omnivore, locavore, etc.)

Vegan though I don't always avoid honey and still own a few things with leather. Plus, I sometimes work with non-vegan or vegan-friendly businesses. I embrace the fundamentals of veganism.

If you've already "Gone Vegan", why'd you do it? If you're considering "Going Vegan", what's inspiring you consider making the decision?

Read "Mad Cowboy" on Valentine's Day in 2007 and immediately stopped eating land animals half way through. 20 months later, I stopped eating fish, eggs and dairy. Also stopped drinking alcohol, too.


LIFESTYLE: single, straight, childfree, substance-free, plant-based HEALTH: fitness & yoga CREATIVITY: graphic design, web design, writing, comedy MUSIC: singing, piano, songwriting BUSINESS: marketing, speaking, writing
