What's your favorite food or dish?

My fave food is probably a toss-up between plain avocado or maybe a slice of papaya with a twist of lime. A close second might be the mushroom-walnut pate in Veganomicon.

How old are you?

My age is, as Anne Taintor would say, "Old enough to know better, too young to give a rat's [rump]."

How long have you been and why are you a vegan or interested in becoming a vegan?

I originally went strict vegetarian for health reasons years ago, but eventually started waffling a little, then somehow came around on my own to what just felt right. I've been happily vegan for the past 8 years.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Other than listening to music - live or otherwise, reading or futzing on the computer, I enjoy sailing, biking (both foot and motor powered) and movies. I would say that I enjoy dancing, but I doubt others enjoy watching (don't bother telling me I dance like Elaine from Seinfeld!). I would like to get back into scuba diving and skiing.


Another wretched East Coast native, and Navy brat to boot. I figured since I'm moving to Portland (arriving in time for VegFest!), I would like to hit the ground running, making new friends.
