Interesting People, Inaugural Event, Founder / Taipei, 2021

The concept is simple: to gather the interesting peoples of our lives from all disciplines and share an evening of conversation and inspiration.
The original spark for me came from Eric Barker's Barking Up the Wrong Tree, where he noted that
"Get-togethers... are ways to change yourself for the better. The groups you associate with often determine the type of person you become.
If you don't know of any awesome groups like these, the easy solution is to start one and be the hub of the network."


So here I am and here it is: INTERESTING PEOPLE. More to come very soon!

Five More Minutes, Director
Five More Minutes is a story about learning to give and extend one’s self, flaws and all, with honesty and vulnerability to another person.
It’s also a story about growing up, and realizing growing is never a thing one does alone.
But at its core, five more minutes is a story about two imperfect people just trying to find themselves,
and maybe getting a little lost along the way.
