Former engineer harnesses social media to become vegan guru
An engineer who started posting his vegan meals on social media has quit his job, written a best-selling recipe book and struck a deal with a leading olive oil company – all in the space of a year. Brett Cobley from Burton-on-Trent, better known as 'EpiVegan', is proof that passion and ambition can lead to your dream job. Now he’s creating his own plant-based recipes, enjoying a huge social media following and encouraging others to rethink the impact of what is on their plates. His cookbook, 'What Vegans Eat', has already sold out TWICE on Amazon. Just over 12 months ago the 28-year-old was living in Nottingham and working as a manufacturing engineer in the automotive industry. He made the life-changing decision to turn vegan a year earlier, excluding all animal products, after watching a video on YouTube.
