I’m the associate director of youth campaigns here at peta2—but I started off as a peta2 member! I grew up in Detroit, where I frequently went to punk and goth shows, which always had merch tables stacked with animal rights stickers, guides, and more. Eventually, I went vegan, after being inspired by Davey Havok of AFI. I realized that while I considered myself an “animal lover,” I was supporting the torture, mutilation, and killing of animals every time I ate them, wore them, or paid for a product that was tested on them.
When I’m not overseeing peta2’s member program, our e-mail and mobile marketing, and more, you can catch me reading, working out, exploring Middle Eastern culture, listening to true crime and paranormal podcasts, hanging out with my three kitties (Hannah, Lily, and Cass), taking photos, or making delicious vegan food!
