Vegan Fashion


I’m a vegan writer and filmmaker from Los Angeles. Thailand has been my home for over a decade, so I no longer own a coat and miss wearing layers.

I’ve watched every season of Ru Paul’s Drag Race and love fashion.

My style is a mix of punk, goth, dandy, mod, and minimalist.
Most of my closet is black, but I still enjoy looking at colorful outfits and critiquing them. Alexander McQueen and John Galliano are my favorite designers since both told stories with their fashion. They have put out the most innovative and unique pieces the world has ever seen. I still get goosebumps when I rewatch some of their runways.

My biggest fashion icons are Oscar Wilde, Salvador Dali, Sid Vicious, David Bowie, Siouxsie Sioux, Trent Reznor, Billy Porter, Tilda Swinton, and Nicki Minaj.

I’m also greatly inspired by fashion from the 1700s and 1800s. Cravats are hot! Fast fashion is horrible for the eyes and the environment, and as Oscar Wilde once said, “Everything popular is wrong.”

Fashion is an art form and a way to express who you are. Don’t follow trends…start them! You can read more of my articles on Medium, follow me on IG, or check out my YouTube channel.


Diet and Makeup


I’m a writer, blogger, and all-around lover of words. I have written lots of children’s books, including Ollie the Vegan Dinosaur– a fun inspiring children’s book for young vegans and Vegan Choice Award Winner 2022!

I left my career as a childcare professional specialising in SEN to pursue writing full time. In addition to children’s literature, I writes for various successful blogs as well as ghostwriting for companies. On top of all my other ventures, I have more books in the works too!

I love all things vegan and I’m truly passionate about making the world a kinder place for all beings.
