"I made the connection between animals and my food when I was still quite young. I grew up on a self-sustained farm and our pigs, ducks, and chickens, in particular, were my best friends.  And quite frankly, I didn't want to eat my friends. I went vegetarian as a kid, which was at a time when vegetarians didn't really exist — well, not where I grew up.  Fast forward 15+ years to the start of my conscious vegan journey."

How do I define spirituality?

Everything is energy, and energy is frequency and vibration. For me, spirituality is life at an energetic level—feeling connected to that energy—and finding that connection back to yourself (Higher Self), and to each other. Then extending that connection to your surroundings: the Sun, the Earth, the Ocean, Nature—the Universe. Spirituality is love. And it's that journey that is the spiritual journey, which differs for everyone.


Spirituality doesn't necessarily mean worshipping unseen figures but connecting back to each other and your true essence—your soul.
