The mastermind behind Plant Based Punk Rock.
Most days you’ll find me drinking iced coffee while designing on my laptop, experimenting with recipes in the kitchen, or eating vegan food at the Jersey shore.
I've been an illustrator all my life, and a vegan for only a small part, but, as many vegans have said throughout time, if I had known the things I know now, I would have done it sooner.
Back in January of 2017, as I was picking courses for my last
semester of my final year of college, I had no idea that my life was about to be impacted greatly, in the most positive way. My Italian professor at the time was helping me decide on a course to take to fulfill the last requirement I needed to finish my major. He suggested that for my last class as an undergrad, I should take his new course ‘Defining Critical Animal Studies’. As a long-time vegan, he had been pushing for a class like this. I was skeptical of course, as I had asked him, “Is this going to turn me into a vegetarian?” His response was, “Only if you want it to.” I eventually went on to go vegetarian,
and ultimately vegan.
I discovered compassion that I didn’t even know I had. So this is a thank you to my professor for urging me in the right direction. Without that class, I don’t think I’d be where I am today.
Go vegan ♥
