Biography

"The GAD? presentations went great! Everyone loved having all three guys here. Their group dynamic is uniquely fabulous and allows nearly everyone in the audience to relate to at least one of them. The documentary was very well received and a fellow student told me it was the most meaningful LEAD event she had been to all year - which is a really big deal. They were fantastic and it was great to see them again. Thanks for your work in bringing them here!"
