Who is Marie

Hi and welcome to my humble e-abode or shall I call it e-bode for extra coolness.  I’m Marie. I used to spend a lot of time trying to figure out what I could possibly do to solve some of the world’s greatest problems. Issues like global warming, diseases of affluence and antibiotic resistance, poverty, and animal suffering all seemed so urgent yet I couldn’t figure out what I could do with my own two hands to make positive change.  Then I learned that it is actually animal agriculture and factory farming that is contributing to most of those issues. I also discovered that by choosing to eat more plant foods, I can reduce the demand for animal agriculture and do something great for the planet, the animals, and my own health.   I also discovered The Good Food Institute and a whole bunch of new startups who are working to solve these issues through technology and innovation.  My life hasn’t been the same since.

 

I started eating a plant-based diet (mostly whole foods). I started reaching out to entrepreneurs and change-makers in Korea and beyond. I became the Seoul Ambassador for the veggie food app Happy Cow and I also now admin the Seoul Veggie Club page on Facebook.  And most importantly, I decided to dedicate myself completely to business and personal endeavors within the plant-based food and lifestyle space.

 

So that’s how I got here and I’m sure you are curious where I am going. In the short term, I am focused on holding plant-based events, community building, content creation, getting this website looking beautiful and taking a few courses on plant-based cooking and nutrition.  After that, I will be ready to start working on bigger scale projects that I will announce over time.  Please browse around and come back often to learn more about upcoming events and the best Vegan food in Korea and beyond.
