Hi, I'm Pete. I went veg in 1999 and vegan in 2002. I was born and raised in the Boston area, spent a brief seven months in San Francisco, then came to Texas in February 2004. I've been here in the Lone Star state since, mostly in and around Austin. I'll be a Fall 2010 graduate from Texas State University and will then teach high school social studies. Go vegan! :)

More About Me

Reasons why I prefer to eat vegetarian or vegan:

I'm a generalist when it comes to the reasons for being vegan. I see my veganism as a boycott against a crappy industry. Animal agriculture, especially factory farming, has to be one of the worst examples of corporate industrialial capitalism run amok - driven primarily by profits instead of respect for the animals, their customers' and workers' health and safety, the safety of the food supply, and the well-being of the surrounding and global ecosystem. I'm not a totally anti-capitalist guy, either, but I can't support something like that.

I joined HappyCow Members Community because:

I joined primarily to add entries that I saw were lacking in the various areas that I've lived in.

Here are some places I've been that I liked... and places that I would like to visit one day:

Eventually, I'd like to take advantage of my summers off as a teacher and do some extensive traveling...particularly, I'd like to roadtrip across the North American West, and also spend some several weeks at a time in South America and Europe. Of places I've been to, San Francisco, Boston, and Austin are cool cities, despite that they're overhyped.

Some of my favorite veg*n foods include:

I'm a comfort food guy...pizza, pasta, sandwiches, potatoes, etc.

Here are some books, movies, magazines, and my favorites that I would recommend to other HappyCow members:

Ishmael, The Onion: Our Dumb Century, Ender's Game
