About Guest Contributor, Shannon Alberta

Shannon Alberta is a consultant for an international animal organization by day, and the loudspeaker for The Veganomaly by night. After completing her Masters in Sustainable Food Systems in spring 2010, Shannon and her partner Joseph moved to Toronto, where they now reside with two dogs (Sophie and Millie), two cats (Shakes and Aldous) and two guinea pigs (Abigail and Ruby). In addition to her work as an animal (including human) rights activist, she is working on a script with Joseph that chronicles the dizzying intersections between love, empathy, Tetris, and popcorning.
