Story: The day came that I was officially older than my dad ever was. Weird, right? Not many people think about that at 32. Time has always been a battle to me, but I've got a new understanding. Now I see it as a gift that I get to pass on. That I get to learn from. And most importantly, that I can use to impact others.
I made a film about all this. - Clay Hervey
