Another day, another committee member interview. There’s a lot of us! This time we’ve got Mike. Mike works to find vendors and exhibitors. And, uh, he’s pretty great at it, though he says his biggest success was convincing himself to become a sponsor.

TCVF: Hey Mike! How did you get involved in planning the Veg Fest?
Mike: Dave asked me if I was interested. He is bigger than I am so I said yes.

TCVF: Sounds about right. What have you enjoyed most so far?
Mike: Spending time with a bunch of vegans on a regular basis and learning about all the companies that produce great vegan foods.

TCVF: What are you most looking forward to at the Veg Fest?
Mike: Seeing 1,500 or more people who care about animals enjoying Veg Fest.

TCVF: What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
Mike: I have been volunteering with Howling for Wolves, a great organization trying to stop the trophy hunting of wolves in Minnesota.

TCVF: Who or what species is your favorite animal?
Mike: Cats. (our 4 cats made me say that)

TCVF: Do you have a favorite recipe you can share?
Mike: I embrace any food that is vegan and made by someone who isn’t me. One of the few dishes I can prepare is tofu scramble.

TCVF: What’s rockin’ your world this month?
Mike: Shouldn’t that be spelled rocking?

Sheesh! Make sure you say hi to the resident grammar nerd at Veg Fest!

[Ed: isn’t that “spelling nerd”, Andrew?]
