I became concerned about nutrition, environmental and animal welfare issues
during my time at university, which is when I adopted a vegetarian diet.
Through my experiences during my year backpacking, my outlook on all aspects
of life changed considerably. I became a vegan in 1992 and, while I was
living in New York, I became actively involved in the animal rights
movement. A friend and I wrote and self-published The Vegan Guide to New
York City which has sold thousands of copies. While training to be a
solicitor, I realised I would not be happy until I was working for an end
that I was committed to. I became the
McLibel office coordinator in May 1994 and haven't looked back since!
