Are you vegan, vegetarian, veg-curious, ...?

Vegan, but not militant. Read 'How Vegan?: Ingredients vs. Activism,' by Matt Ball: It's a great article that describes exactly "how" I'm a vegan. :-)

How/why/when did you become veg*n?

Ethical vegetarian since I was kid. Became an ethical, environmental, and health-minded semi-vegan when I was a sophomore in college (over 10 years ago). Gradually went completely vegan. Next step: More raw food. :-)

What interests or issues are important to you?

I'm a big animal rights advocate. Factory farming, in particular, and sow gestation crates REALLY bother me. :-( I'm also all about meeting other veggie people; my veg friends help me keep my sanity--sort of. :-D

How did you find out about VegKC and/or this meetup group?

I helped develop the site. If you have comments or suggestions, please let us know--email us at info @ We're working to make it database-driven, so look for some big changes in the future. :-D


Nerdy veg-head looking to enjoy KC's awesome veg-friendly restaurants and to make new friends.
