What is the best thing about Taiwan? It’s the smallest big Asian city with a very laid back hustle and bustle.

What is the worst thing about Taiwan? There is no good Mexican food.

A perfect day in Taiwan? Getting out of the city for a mini day trip out to the coast, followed by a nice meal with friends and dessert at a night market.

If someone was visiting, what must they do? As of right now, head to the Taipei Fine Art Museum to catch the Ai Wei Wei exhibit!

A perfect meal in Taipei? It’s a small little noodle cart a block down the alley serving so far the best noodle soup I’ve had  for only 50NT! (Equiv to about $1.50 USD).

Tell us a locals only tip: If you are a filmmaker, the community here is like family, for better or for worse.

A little known fact about Taiwan? You can eat for under $5 a day.

Where is your favorite place in the world? Wherever my loved ones, friends, and family are. And I’m always happy to extend that wherever I am.
