Matt grew up on an animal farm and later on a pig factory farm -- so he knows a lot about the horrors of animal agribusiness. He went vegan for the animals, then later learned of (and became a subject matter expert on) the environmental, health, and food justice issues as well. He is a long-time vegan and vegan advocate working to build a more compassionate world.
