Great LA trip! Friends & Food and some fun!! all in 48 hours!!

Here's a quick shout out to my old friends and some new friends i met during our 48 hours in LA:)
It was really a pleasure to meet the Colin Campbell foundation crew led by Jack Murphy who's a really good and honest person we hope to work with more. Colin they did a great job! Jess and i had a great time, they took care of everything, the lecture went great with a good crowd, lots of variety of people in the crowd (bodybuilders, power lifters, olympic lifters, functional training folks to vegan, veg, plant based all the way to meat based:) The crowd asked alot of great questions and we had alot of fun!!
So the lecture went great but i also wanted to say how fun it was to see my old friends and meet alot of new ones. Met with old friends like Henry Akins (BJJ master), Mr. Matt Zaborowski (MBG Silverback who i hope moves back here to chicago soon!!:) and his lovely lady Jenny "i'm little but tough as nails" Foxx, to JP (John Pierre) a really old friend who i havent seen in about 15 years!!!:) JP is a hard core 30 year vegan who walks the walk, if you want a true person look him up cause he is one:) Last but not least is the MBG Moorpark and MBG Thousand Oaks crew....all supported big time! Thanks Kevin, Justin, Jeremy, Zack!
Then met some new friends like Robert Cheeks from vegan and we've played e-mail tag for over a year and finally met! Very cool guy and it was a pleasure! Bryon Au (raw vegan super chef!) this guy is a riot, and i mean that 1000% one of the funniest guys i've ever met and he knows his stuff too whippin' up amazing meals in 5 minutes for us all!! Tasty as heck!! Then also met award winning Shaun Monson the director of Earthlings...powerful movie all should see. For sure check all these kind folks out, they are all kind, conscious and honorable people and i'm very happy to have met them and gotten to talk and hang with them all! MUCH LOVE!!:)
