“I think we’re going 10 or 12 years in the future,” he said. “Kind of like that. But we talk about the future after that and what comes after. That’s a cool part of it.”
“I thought it wasn’t necessarily about what’s happening now, but what’s in store for the future,” he added. “Where are these three going and the tools they have to help them navigate through all the trials and tribulations that may come their way.”
