07: Greg Hung on Following Your Passion and Making Money with Video

Greg and I met at Mana Coworking space while I was filming my ‘Where to work in Chiang Mai’ video but it wasn’t until I did a search on Google to find out more about stock footage that I came across Greg’s work.

Greg is the man who’s all about video in Chiang Mai. In today’s episode, we map Greg’s journey from working in IT in Canada to becoming a ‘videopreneur’ in Chiang Mai.
