My Story

How old are you?
I'm 47 years old, a plant-based whole-food eater (i.e. real-food vegan) and a couple of years ago I won Masterchef NZ.

What do you do?
Since that rather life-changing event I've gradually become more and more of a part-time eco-warrior. Why? Simply because after opening my eyes and looking around it's abundantly clear that we're all on this lovely little planet together and we really need to take better care of it. Part of my week I work for a community trust in West Auckland helping run the shop at the dump (or in PC terms "rescuing valued waste and making it available to the local community"). It's an awesome opportunity to help shift people's perceptions of what's valuable and to shine a light on the all-consuming consumer society we live in. I also create plant-based recipes which are published in the NZ Herald's Bite magazine, run cooking classes and do whatever I can to inspire people about loving food that loves them back.

What's your hobby?
The more yoga and meditation I do the more I enjoy life and the more I care about the lives of the other animals we share this world with. They need clean air, water and space just like we do. I'm inspired by the idea that if we used our productive land more efficiently, growing healthy fruits, veges, grains and trees instead of farm animals, we could improve our water quality, improve our soils and make more space for wild places and creatures. As a huge bonus we'd all be healthier, happier and add life to our years.
Sweet! I've got way too many interests to do any of them justice, am obsessed by music, in love with art and fascinated by human beings.
