I just ran across you guys and am very impressed by the quality of the work I'm seeing.  Very thorough website with lot's of impressive content.  I'm looking forward to finding out more.  And if you ever have any Southern California training's I'd be interested in possibly participating.  Especially in the category of faux rock construction.
