Over the past weekend, I was apart of a presentation and panel group discussion for the ATG 2013 Groundbreakers Speak: A Conversation with Movers and Shakers. Sharing the room with the likes of very accomplished, very intelligent, very intuitive, and very passionate, high-profile Asians made me think to myself as I was sitting in front of everyone…“WTF am I doing here?”
But seriously, it was an EXTREME honor to be invited out by ATG to share my passions, my love for life and my brand for the many people who swung through to the Crow Collection. Look they even gave me a certificate. Cool!
Even cooler was Dat Nguyen. I followed his career when he played at Texas A&M and with the Dallas Cowboys so for me to be sitting on the same panel as him discussing passions and Asian traditionalism vs. the modern day Asian? Mannnn….you got to be kidding me. But no, it really did happen. So cool.
On the other side of me were Lily Jang (Emmy nominated Journalist TV Host and News Anchor at KHOU), Richard Jung (Lawyer/Advocate/Politician) and Tanya Pinto (Founder of Baal Dan Charities). Like I said earlier…“WTF am I doing here?”
Was it rude taking pictures instead of listening to what was going on? -_______-
After everyone’s presentations and panel discussion, I got to meet up with old AND new Fur Face Boy fans…
I gave stuff away…
It was good talking to you Alexander! Keep drawing and making art : )
A HUGE thank you to Nikki! Nikki is an ATG board member, longtime FFB fan and was the one who nominated me to be apart of this amazing event after she heard me speak a few months back at the Public Trust Gallery. She also has a awesome line of custom made handbags called Cykochik! Please check out her bags and other goods HERE!
Everyone loves Dat Nguyen!
Here’s a short video of the day…
It was an amazing and very inspirational day! To hear all of the stories and tales from like-minded, hardworking and passionate individuals really sparked me to continue to push and make Fur Face Boy even bigger and better! Again, thank you to the ATG for inviting me to be apart of this event and to the many people who came out to get inspired and motivated to do, start or continue with their own passions!
