My name is Erin, but everyone calls me Red and that's just fine with me.

I'm a certified VLCE and Vegan Nutrition Specialist, fitness professional, public speaker, writer, consultant, kitchen wrangler, problem solver, host of the popular vegan podcast Red Radio, and right-hand-woman to vegan Wunderkind Chef Jay Astafa. I also co-founded The Seed in 2012, and continue to organize events across North America.

By night I'm a muay Thai practitioner, runner, Bikram Yogini, and tattoo collector. I share my pad with a vegan human, a vegan dog, and two carnivorous cats… all rescued. I hail from Toronto, Canada but Brooklyn, NYC is home.

I hustle. Hard.

Try to keep up.



Hey Everyone!

As you can see, is a work in progress and it’s coming together in bits and pieces.  Forgive me for posting the Red Radio Holiday Giveaway winners a couple days late; the new blog only became active today!  There are still plenty of kinks to iron out, but I didn’t want y’all to have to wait for the good news, so here we go!

In Episode Fifty, I announced that I’d give away THREE memberships to Colleen Patrick-Goudreau's 30-Day Vegan Challenge to the first three folks who could tell me which song I have used more than once for the Red Radio outro.  Turns out there are TWO to choose from (since I’m a scatterbrain), and you guys were definitely on the ball!

Nice work, you guys!  Please keep your peepers peeled for a congratulatory email from me with instructions on how to redeem your 30-Day Vegan Challenge membership, or information on how to gift it to someone else.  HOORAY!

Lots of blog posts and show notes on which to catch up; stay tuned and thanks again for your support - it’s all coming together!

THAT’S RIGHT, LOYAL LISTENERS!  It’s giveaway time!

Just in time for the holiday season, I’m giving away THREE memberships to the inimitable Colleen Patrick-Goudreau's totally comprehensive multimedia program, The 30-Day Vegan Challenge!  You can use it for yourself, or give it away as the most perfect of holiday gifts - your choice!

HOW TO ENTER:  As most of you already know, I close each episode of Red Radio with a song that relates somehow to the content of the show.  Though I strive to choose a different song for each episode, TWO songs have unwittingly been used more than once.  Find out the name, artist and episode number of either ONE of the songs… and you win!

Simply send an email to with the specified details on or before the deadline - the first three folks to answer correctly WIN!

DEADLINE:  11:59pm on Monday, December 17th, 2012

Winners will be notified by email on (my birthday) Tuesday, December 18th, 2012, and their names will be announced the same day as the first blog post up on my BRAND NEW WEBSITE, launching at  

What are you waiting for?
