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!

EP29 Show Notes!

This is how I know I’m pretty much busier than ever:  I opened this page to start writing my blog post over four hours ago.  Every once in a while I’d click back to see how far along I was (blank page every time) and then forget about it entirely when something else came up.

Seriously, it just happened again.  There was a 30 minute break between the last paragraph and this one. 

And another 45 minutes between these two.  FOCUS, RED.  FOCUS!

…Ok, now it’s about 48 hours since I started this blog post, and I’m even more zombie-fied than I was in the first place.  Let’s just get to these show notes before I melt into my computer, yes?

BUT FIRST!  CONGRATULATIONS to the winners of the Red Radio Ticket Giveaway for The Seed: A Vegan Experience!

Your tickets have been processed and I can’t wait to see you at the show - TOMORROW!!!!

And, as I anticipated, this week has successfully kicked my white butt.  Red Radio EP30 will be released on Monday, June 25th - I sincerely appreciate your understanding while I devote myself to The Seed.

I can’t wait to see you all there!
