James Lucas Speaking at VegFests

Here is my talk at the Speaker Salon by The Big Talk in New York, NY. I talk about my childhood and how I learned about veganism. I am looking for speaking engagements at vegfests and other events.

“James Lucas lives, breathes and eats compassion. His talk about his journey to this place is filled with humor, love and sometimes difficulty. His ability to share an idea without judgment or asking anything of the audience is remarkable and welcome.”

-Tricia Brouk, Writer/Director/Choreographer/TEDx Producer


James has been a graphic designer for over 25 years and has an MBA in Marketing. He is a gifted artist whose work is mostly inspired by nature and music. James creates many of the T-shirts that are sold online at GrapeCat.com. He finds inspiration in his love of animals and his passion for delicious vegan recipes that he enjoys creating. Wanting to share his joy for vegan cooking and dining, James started the Bucks County Vegan Supper Club in 2009. Members meet once a month for a vegan potluck dinner. The supper club inspires experienced and recent vegans to try new recipes. James is proud to support many businesses in his community and across the country by sharing their vegan lifestyle stories on his podcasts and blogs and by bringing products proudly “Made in the U.S.A.” with GrapeCat.com.
