I was born in ATL "A-town Shawty" and raised on the Southside but I currently reside in Cambridge, MA. Before creating Let's Be Vegan I was in the restaurant business. I hate bananas. My favorite food is mango and I eat at least two a day. I literally go to the grocery store every single day and sometimes I go to several different ones in a single day looking for the perfect produce or ingredient to use in my next blog post or cookbook...which leads me to the next random fact. My kitchen is always a disaster because I'm constantly testing recipes, or looking for the perfect bowl, plate, or napkin to use in my photographs. I also love collecting healing crystals. I literally have them everywhere. I also love collecting original vinyl records. I have everything from Al Green (I love Al Green), Red Hot Chili Peppers (I love RHCP so much that I considered getting an asterisk tattoo, and one of the highlights of my life was taking my 10 year old son to see them live last year), Jefferson Airplane, Muddy Waters, Curtis mayfield, Bill Withers, Fleetwood Mac, Sade and so much more. Music is super important to me and I'm always listening to it, especially while I'm cooking.
