Eric Brent, founder and director of HappyCow, first had the idea to create an online guide to vegan restaurants in the late 90s. As a 20-plus year vegan who has traveled to more than 50 countries, Brent knows firsthand how difficult it can be to find "safe" food upon arriving in a new city. More than a decade after launch, HappyCow.com garners about 850,000 visitors per month and helps vegans and vegetarians all over the world find great food nearby. Glen Merzer is coauthor with Pamela A. Popper, PhD, ND of "Food Over Medicine," with Howard Lyman of "Mad Cowboy," with Howard Lyman and Joanna Samorow-Merzer of "No More Bull!," and with Chef AJ of "Unprocessed." Merzer is also a playwright and screenwriter, having most recently completed a screenplay from "Mad Cowboy." He has been a vegetarian for 40 years and a vegan for the last 20.
