I’m so proud of him

I had a conversation with someone today (did a video about it here) and I remembered a bit more about why I started doing everything I do. It was a reminder to me that while evolution and growth can be positive things, it’s important to stay true to your roots. I’ve been thinking alot about …

Background: If you recall, Gavin’s labs from this past week were so concerning that we’re retesting to make sure they’re correct. So much is so drastically wrong that we need to …
