We had the good fortune of connecting with theo cao and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi theo, what do you attribute your success to?
I want the ordinary person to look and feel extraordinary when I make a video or photo for them. The moto of my company is “refuse to settle, refuse to submit, refuse to sink”. this speaks out to me because we all face obstacles in our life and I want to document other people journeys and what they have been through.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’m most proud to see that other people are inspired by the videos or photos that I create. It took me many years to learn and acquire the knowledge that I have now. the one thing that it was hard to learn all these new assets, but I couldn’t give up and I will always have to keep learning new things. If the people that I have film can overcome their adversities, so can I. looking back to when I started in my parents house editing videos from a free app for school projects to now getting hired and recognition to the work that I do now, that I am glad that I never gave up this passion and continue to learn and grow.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take them to china town to let them try out the variety of Asian foods that they offer. I feel like that many of my friends are so used to Chinese take outs that they haven’t expired other type of Asian food. I would also take them out to all the unique gyms that we have in Houston, such as Befit, roman empire, species gym, alhpalete, etc. I do believe in a sound mind and body, so we would all go workout. i would also at night take them out to all the fun bars and parks that downtown has to offer. we would also to to discovery green and go night scootering and get a fun tour of the place.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My parents, Barbrkz, my new friends that I’ve all encountered
erica, price, spar houston, karina fit, speedlion.
