About Me: I come from a small family in rural Kentucky but now live in Los Angeles with Tinker, my adopted animal companion. I once flew a plane solo. I dig going to shows and finding new bands to listen to. I'm also a huge fan of random road trips, and I love going on adventures with Tinker! I Love: Animals, roller derby, the ocean, cooking, bubble wrap, documentaries, and coupons. I Dislike: Snow, traffic, people who are mean to animals, and most reality TV. Animal Rights Tattoos: I have "Animal Liberation, Human Liberation" on the back of my arm. Favorite Vegan Food/Restaurant: When it comes to vegan food, I'm an equal opportunist! I'm a huge fan of Veggie Grill and Café Gratitude (nom nom!), but I always love discovering new places to grub and recipes. The spicier, the better! Why I Went Vegan: I was raised in a vegetarian home and taught from an early age that all earthlings deserve respect. After joining the Street Team at peta2, I learned about the horrors of the dairy industry, and from that point on, I knew I had to do something to help. I quickly switched to a vegan diet and spread the word far and wide!
