What I do
I’ve worked at Viva! since 2004, on successful campaigns from exposing the conditions of factory farmed pigs to ending the sale of foie-gras by the world’s largest online retailer. I have appeared on numerous TV and radio programmes and have placed dozens of stories exposing animal cruelty in national and regional press.
Working at Viva!
I love working for Viva! because despite seeing the worst excesses of cruelty to animals I know I have the opportunity to help stop that suffering. Viva! save lives and it is a privilege and honour to be a part of such a vital organisation.
I went vegan because…
I know animals feel pain and love like we do. Being vegan is the best thing I can do to be a friend to them. I also know that being vegan isn’t about giving up the good things in life – which is lucky as I’m partial to chocolate and the odd tipple!
My favourite vegetable…
Sugar snap peas! I always have a bowl of salad, fruit and veg to snack on and sugar snap peas are the perfect snack.
