So in honor of Go Skateboarding Day, we thought it fitting to post our full interview (from our In the Spotlight section of the May Native Newsletter) with Steve-O, who got his start doing stunts for the skateboarding magazine Big Brother. We asked him some questions.... and he gave us some answers. After you read this, go get on your skateboard! And head to Native Foods...
Where are you from?
I was born in England and grew up in five different countries (Brazil, Venezuela, America, Canada, and England).
What is your sign?
What inspired you to become vegan/ vegetarian?
I was doing so much drugs that I started hearing voices, and some of the voices warned me that I will "have to answer" for my actions. I wound up becoming afraid of being punished for causing animals to suffer. That was the very beginning of my journey, it wasn't long before it stopped being about fear and started being about the feeling of being rewarded by doing the right thing.
How did you come to be part of the Jackass family?
I did stunts and made videos that made me a regular character in a skateboard magazine. The people in charge of that magazine went on to create jackass.
Who or what do you think has had the most impact on the growing vegan/ vegetarian movement?
Becoming vegan has benefitted every area of my life, it's that simple. I'm physically healthier, and happier both mentally and emotionally.
Do you have any pets?
I have two rescue dogs, Walter and Bernie.
What do you want to be when you "grow-up"?
If you could live anywhere, where would it be and why?
California for now, thinking of winding up in Canada before too long.
What is your favorite current menu item at Native Foods Cafe?
Sesame Kale Macro Bowl.

Favorite Native Foods' dessert?
I love all desserts.
Do you have a signature dish you make at home?
I just swore off the microwave. F those things. I know that didn't answer t=
he question, and I don't mind.
What are your favorite bands?
I don't even know how to begin answering that question.
What was your first concert ever?
Do you like to dance?
What do you do in your free time?
Surf. Play with my dogs.
Do aliens exist?
Sure. I've lived with plenty of them, and I'm sure I still do.
