I became vegetarian as an obese teenager (320lbs) and, through a period of spiritual searching, became a buddhist monk practicing in temples throughout California and Japan, engaging in a self-sufficient lifestyle. While in Japan, I injured myself during a meditation retreat and had to return to Canada, after approximately a year of being a monk.
Not long after returning, I became 100% vegan and a personal fitness trainer/nutritionist and a musician, having lost 155lbs. I wasn't satisfied and felt I wasn't doing what I really wanted to do, so a year ago I left that life with my partner (Roxanne) and started farming again. At the moment, I'm in the process of starting my own farm based on permaculture principles. For money, I sell vegetables. For myself, I aim to develop an extensive food forest and perennial food system. I try to eat mostly raw, the only limited factor being financial at the moment and the time of year.
Problem is, I don't really like fruit from the northwest. I like tropical fruit. So who knows, maybe I'll end up farming in Hawaii! I'll keep you and my girlfriend updated on that one :P
