Speaking gig in Hong Kong~

I received a phone call from Wilson Chan of ZEntertainment of Hong Kong in the late winter. He was looking for a draw for the opening ceremonies, and felt that I was a edgy western designer, making designs in a new exciting way. I think he also saw that I enjoyed making videos, and might be up for a show. The mall was spectacular, with hi-end retailers as well as the prominent presence of large stores like Ikea and Restoration Hardware. They ordered a number of my pieces and flew me out for the ceremony. For over a week, I spoke on stage to audience, sometimes in the hundreds, about the designs and how I came to build them. I was interviewed over a dozen times by newspapers and magazines, and numerous television broadcasts. There was even a confetti canon. The celebration was a hit.
