Actor, dancer, trainer, with a passion for maximum human health and performance.
Why did you become vegan?
A prayer turned me into a vegan. My questions were: What are we really doing? What is success? Do I want to fight my whole life for fame and fortune? For What? Why is the world promoting corruption and lying about it all the time? Why are the prominent celebrities and leaders, all in the limelight due to a celebration of corrupt behavior or decisions? Do I want to join them?
These deep questions lead me into a prayer, to ask for guidance. All animal products began to make me feel nausea. Each particular food that I ate began to make me feel sick, so I eliminated it. Step by step I became raw vegan. I began to feel better and healthier every day that went by.
I studied everything I could on the subject, watched all the videos like Earthlings.
