I am into digital communication, food security, animal welfare, human rights, and humanizing technology. Once upon a time I had a blog called Prairie Vegan – but it is no more, since becoming citified. When I’m not making nerdy things happen with code, I’m probably volunteering, tending to foster cats (and our own two cats), eating, taking pictures, and doing random classes on Coursera.
I’ve been vegan for over half of my life, and it’s been an interesting and exciting journey to watch the cuisine and movement evolve.
If you would like a product or cookbook review please feel free to email me.
I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada with my partner JC, and our two cats – Kes & Emmie, and usually 1 or 2 Toronto Cat Rescue foster cats.
JC is a professional nerd, and has been involved in the magical and admirable pursuit of changing the way people read. MeShell is madly in love with him (You will also frequently see him appear in Things I Love Thursday posts), and thinks/knows he’s brilliant (and yes – she’s writing this bio.)
He has a blog (which he never updates.)
is a nutty ginger cat with a twitter account (@emmiecat), but she’s never online enough to update. She enjoys waking her humans’ up by bringing a toy mouse onto the bed and playing with it, or wrapping herself around MeShell’s head and purring. It works every time. You can read her adoption story here.
Her favourite places to hang out are on MeShell’s shoulder, and any available windowsill
She’s also very chatty:
Kes is the newest edition to our family, originally starting out as a foster cat (with her brother Neelix), but eventually becoming a permanent cat. She’s still a kitten so she’s full of energy, and helps keep Emmie busy. She does not have a twitter account (yet.)
