About

I am a Vegetarian/Pescatarian philosophy professor living in Chicago. Food has always been a passion of mine so why not share my thoughts with the rest of the world. I have been focused on eating ethically, yet affordably, which is thought to be challenging but it doesn’t have to be challenging.

Chicago is a wonderful “foodie” city but for what kind of foodie?  The meat-eating kind?  I share my perspective navigating the city as an ethical foodie meaning that I choose not to eat sentient beings (beings that can feel pain and pleasure).  I am also a philosophy professor so affordability is an issue.  I aim to eat delicious foods that are ethical and affordable.  This makes my “foodie” experience of Chicago a different and unique kind of foodie experience, a perspective that differs from the “mainstream” Chicago foodie perspective.

I also do diversity trainings, presentations, write for Logan Squarist, and academic publications.  If you are interested in collaborating or having me speak, please email me at chiveg01@gmail.com.  I’d love to write for your publication, speak at your campus or organization.
