And though at first he followed a career at art and design his passion for cooking won him over. After going vegan back in 2008, he began experimenting with all the new ingredients he was learning about at the time and started working on new recipes or trying to veganize traditional Greek recipes. By 2018 he decided that he wanted to share with the world what he had learned all the past years about vegan cooking. So, he created the vegan food blog Beets Me and his YouTube channel (Beets Me).
