AN EXPERT IN VEGANISM
The Girl Behind the Goat
I’m the woman who runs Your Daily Vegan. Sometimes people ask me if I’m a goat because of the logo, but I’m not. I started this website in 2009 with one goal: to bring the vegan evolution to the masses, and I think it’s working. I’ve been living vegan for more than twelve years—approximately 4,380 days—which I view as one of my most significant accomplishments. I’m not vegan for myself; I’m vegan to save the lives of animals. I can’t save every life; I save every life that I can.
I have shared the last 20+ years with my vegan wife, whom I married at Lasa Animal Sanctuary. Inspired by incredible live-saving work that animal sanctuaries do, I decided to start one of my own, Four Urban Paws Sanctuary. I’ve always hated dairy-based cheese, especially melted. The ideal temperature is a sunny 79 degrees; the perfect place is the beach. Reggae, always and forever. Hard-core kombucha lover, second generation philatelist, and bibliophile. Hiking, air hockey, and Bollywood movies- in that order. Self-proclaimed badass and unofficial championess of all animals. Little dreamer of big dreams. Unapologetically vegan. Read my work.
