I was lucky enough to spend a morning with Crystal Legoffe and Jackie Carlson. These ladies rip and do it with mucho style. Amazing people, very unique and they had me laughing all day. It was rad to hang out and get to know them. Stay tuned for more from these two; sky's the limit. Side note: Have you ever brought a toasted sandwich for lunch? Jackie did and it looked amazing. She had pistachios and dates to go with it, game changer.

Bonus question from Crystal for Jackie.
If you had to choose one these super powers which would it be and why?
1- You have super strength but only when you're drunk.
2- You have super speed but only when you've had a little too much weed.
3- You can walk anywhere in the world. It always takes 30 minutes (going 5 minutes away and 5 hours are the same) but if you touch any kind of transportation vehicle it immediately explodes.
Crystal and her boyfriend Ben started a web series called Mediorca. Check it out below. She also did all the animation art. Nice work Crystal! You and Jackie are both crushing it. Thanks for hanging out. Keep killing it!
