“My sister and I have had the incredible good fortune to grow up around great minds who are always pushing the boundaries of innovation and imagination,” added Gotham. “Now – because of the technological tools we have at our disposal, YouTube most notably – we are able to help evolve this community of thinkers to a whole new stratosphere. We no longer need to evangelize change, we can do it, and be it, and share it with one another.
