How did you hear about the San Diego Vegans?

Invite them to a potluck or over for dinner is good, but sharing all the wonderful movies like Forks over Knives, Hungry for Change and others have had the strongest impact. I am also one of the founder's of Kale University and our organization is a non profit dedicated to sharing the knowledge with everyone on the internet and though social media. is a great resource and way to educate people about a whole food plant-based diet. I love to eat Kale and we have a lot of it growing at all times here at Kale U.

What motivated you to join this MeetUp group?

Love all things Whole, Organic and Healing. I love to prepare healthy dishes and share with others.

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

Potlucks and other social get-togethers, help. The biggest motivator has been learning to create amazing dishes in our raw vegan kitchen.

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

2010 after having been vegetarian for 3 years.

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?

The noticeable difference in my health, weight and over all energy. Also the vegan foods I learned to prepare were far more tasty and nutritious. I don't miss the dairy or animals products at all and years ago, I never would have expected to be saying that. I like to be kind to animals and I believe that the world needs to shift to a kinder way of being, where all creatures are respected and loved.


I'm a raw vegan chef living near San Diego in La Mesa. I enjoy socializing and teaching raw food recipes to other LikeMind-ees. I believe in the power of people to teach, learn and share their knowledge with the community. Vegans Rock!
