Alexander Bvck is a sober animal rights activist, triathlete and musician, but things weren't always this way. Alex grew up in Northern Los Angeles and did a lot of acting as a kid which allowed him to live a much different life than most children his age. Looking back on his life, he realized that he may have developed some personality traits during this time that may have influenced some of his actions later in life.
Alex was exposed to veganism and vegetarianism in the punk scene as a teen, and as 16 years old, decided to give up all meat. At one point in his early adulthood, he went back to eating animals, and when he came to a point where he wanted to stop, he dealt with the same sort of addiction and peer pressure associated with his consumption of alcohol or other substances.
After watching Okja, Alex went vegetarian over night.
Tune in to hear Alexander's entire story, including what he continues to do to fight for the animals today, how he maintains his sobriety and sanity, and where you can hear his band "Bad Jesus" play!
