I am a photographer and foodie originally from Toronto, though I usually spend most of my time traveling.

I love food and eating! Even in my modeling days, I was never good at dieting, and have always had to eat for myself. I love feeling light and energized, and feel the best eating plant based food with lots of raw fruits and veggies.
What Health means to you?
Being healthy means feeling energetic, glowing on the inside and out, and feeling happy and connected.

I used to model and wanted to start a vegan blog a few years ago to share my love of food. I thought it would be fun to include some of my friends in the shots and it just grew from there.

Tahini, basil, and avocados.
