Longtime stashedboxes.com follower and die hard skater Sean Conley has many talents. He is a high school culinary arts teacher, musician, photographer, and cinematographer. Check out Sean's recent interview with Vegan Skate Blog.
Below is a small tidbit from the Interview:
Why did you go Veg?
I went vegetarian my junior year of high school, in 2003. I originally went vegetarian because I didn’t like meat to begin with and didn’t agree with the thought of having to kill something to eat. I was also heavily influenced by the one and only Ed Templeton. I saw an interview with him and immediately felt connected and that I was not alone in my choices. It was really easy for me to stop eating meat and and I of course researched and learned of the countless benefits of a meat free diet after that. Even when I was vegetarian I didn’t wear suede or leather, or drink milk. I toured europe in summer 2009 with one of my bands and most of my friends over there were already vegan and I ate vegan the whole summer. It was a no-brainer for me to continue this when I got home, and that was about 3 years ago. I love it more and more. I feel healthier, and I’m in the best shape of my life. I cook all the time and now that I teach cooking I can share my knowledge with my students.
What is your favorite thing to skate and why?
TWo things. A really nice ledge; because I can skate it for hours and never get bored. And two, the streets. It’s vague but I love to just skate through a city and explore, using my skateboard as transportation. there is no other feeling like bombing hills with no clear direction of where you’re going.
Sean has been intensely immersed in traveling lately and we hope to catch up with him about his experiences very soon!
