I'm the editor in Chief and founder of Vegan Health & Fitness Magazine. I have a law degree from UC Berkeley. I have 2 fur children who live with me and another 4 fur children living with my best friend. I run and lift weights for exercise. I am in awe of nature. If I didn't feel compelled to change the world (if it were all vegan and perfect), I would spend all day in nature, observing various animals and smelling flowers. However, in the real world, most of my day is filled with photo shoots, editing the magazine on my computer, and visits to the grocery store and gym. Still not too shabby. I get to spend lots of time with plant foods and my fur babies!
