William (aka VeganDietGuy) is a vegan chef, writer/photographer, yogi, and marathon runner who passionately believes that plant-based diets are a giant step forward for animal welfare, human health, and the future of the planet. He believes the more whole unprocessed raw organic plant-based foods–predominantly vegetables–we eat the better.
Originally from Washington, DC, VeganDietGuy lived and worked in Tokyo, Japan for 22 years, adopting a plant-based diet in 2006. He holds a certificate in Fundamentals of Raw Cuisine from Matthew Kenney Culinary Academy, and in Plant-Based Nutrition from T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies and eCornell.
William has trained and worked at some of the most prestigious culinary schools, retreat centers, and restaurants including: Creative Health Institute, Living Light Culinary Institute, Millennium Restaurant, Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center, Pure Food and Wine and Elizabeth’s Gone Raw. He has given raw food demonstrations for Whole Foods Market, yoga studios, and other venues.
William now resides in Honolulu (Oahu, Hawaii) and works as a personal vegan chef. Please contact him if you need assistance going on or staying on a whole foods plant based diet, including lessons, gtoup workshops or assistance with your special event.
