Q: What was your favorite campaign that you have worked on with Social Native and why?
It’s pretty hard to pinpoint one specific campaign of all time, but this year I can definitely say my Viator campaign! I had the opportunity to book an experience that was local to me of my choosing, which was a helicopter tour of my hometown. That to me was way more exciting and different than most campaigns from brands that involve only a product shoot.
Q: Being a small business owner yourself, can you recommend three AAPI-owned small businesses that you would recommend?
100% yes! I’m lucky enough to be surrounded by fellow entrepreneurs who inspire me everyday that are AAPI-owned.
Açaí Joint (@acai_joint) — My friend Almon just opened up their 3rd location! They have locations in Rowland Heights, Baldwin Park, and Rosemead. I’ve been following his journey since location #1 opened.
SIP Boba Lounge (@sipbobalounge) — Your alcoholic boba fix that’s in their soft opening phase in LA which is operated by Arena Nightlife Group. The homie D. Ho is one of the most creative guys I ever met.
Tiny Totem (@tinytotem.official) — Josh is a mastermind full of original ideas. He’s currently in the works of perfecting his newest company, which is a compact but fully digital LED screen totem that you can upload any image/video to display on your music festival totem.
