My name is Michael Sparks, I'm a 22 year old filmmaker and philosopher from Austin, TX. I grew up eating a traditional Spanish diet consisting of high protein, high fat dishes which I would later come to realize was the cause of my late grandfather's heart disease.. After leaving college, becoming a Buddhist and meeting vegetarians who would go on to become good friends of mine.. I happened to stumble upon Freelee's videos one evening and had a moment of clarity.. How could I claim to be a Buddhist yet continue to consume animal products that cause suffering? How could I continue to eat terrible things while watching my family member's health decline? After much research into the RAW diet, I am convinced that this is the life I want to live. Since January 1st I have not consumed or purchased animal products and have eaten more fruits and veggies than I have in my whole life. I am happier, healthier, and glad to know that like-minded people are out there ready to help me on my journey. I am excited for this experience and am never looking back :)

Hey, it's going! I'm a bit sick right now, and I have a foot injury - and a 5k tomorrow! So that should be interesting and amusing. I'm just recently back on 811 - after being 811 for a year, and then a year of plain vegan while I did some traveling... I'm ready to be fruity again, so much more energy and happiness! How are you doing? Do you go to school here in Austin?

I'm leaving on Saturday to travel across the country for 8 months on an all raw diet.

:) I will be filming my journey for a documentary, as well as starting a YouTube channel so people back home can stay in touch. I hope to inspire people I meet along my travels to improve their health, dream big and spread love always.

I've put up a PayPal donation link in case anyone is feeling generous :) anything helps and your proceeds will help to put fruit in my belly along the way.…


Fundraising for 8 month raw adventure across the country! YouTube channel coming soon with your help!

Hey fruit lovers! :) I'm currently trying to raise some last minute funds for my 8 month 100% raw vegan journey across the country which begins on Saturday, so I decided to put up this PayPal donation link. The goal is $250 (to purchase food supplies, a juicer and more camera gear) and anything you can contribute towards this is greatly appreciated. ♥ I've started a YouTube channel which I will be updating regularly and I hope to reach and inspire young people around the world to better…
