The Story of Beef Vegan
Born in New Jersey, raised in Arizona. I’ve been described as a west coast kid with a east coast attitude. A former derelict who’s living the American dream. I’m not supposed to be here, I was told I was supposed to be in jail. I don’t like doing what I’m told. I once heard that if you do what you love, success will follow. I listened. I grew up in Phoenix, lived in Prescott, went to school in Flagstaff, and now work in Tucson. If I grow up I will run for Governor of Arizona. Vote 4 Beef Vegan 2036!
