A tiffin a day keeps the hunger away.

After years of marketing for big-name companies like Mars and Coca Cola, Adrian Tay has finally had the chance to step back and construct a business he believes in- “Green Tiffin,” a delivery service which prepares healthy, daily meals for vegetarian and flexitarians alike. Hear the business’ conception story, as well as Adrian’s Burning Man experiences as a fire dancer.

Show Notes:

Though Green Tiffin has only been active for a year now, the influences of the tiffin itself reaches all the way back to Adrian’s childhood growing up in Malaysia. After school, he rushed home to open a container of food from a relative, specially prepared to give him all the nutrients he needed to grow up strong.

Adrian spent years working for companies like Mars, Wrigley and Coca-Cola where he gained the business knowledge necessary to successfully market a product. It didn’t hit until he was on the other side of the world in Australia that while he had everything he wanted- a great apartment, a fancy car, a stunning life in a bustling city- he wasn’t getting what he needed. That’s when he remembered the tiffins, and the warm smell of love as it rose from the homemade bowl.

Adrian’s vegetarian menus now reflect the meals he received in reusable containers or ‘tiffins,’ an English word which means for ‘snacking’ or ‘lunching.’ His meals are delivered each weekday on electric bicycles to produce the least possible waste. The tiffins are reusable, as are the small burlap sacks the containers come in. The company has been operating for nearly a full year- except during the week of Burning Man, when Adrian closed his doors and ignited his Dragon Staff for his fifth consecutive year as a Burner and a fire dancer.

What is this, a studio for ants?!

Designer and producer David Szlasa is the creator of “Range Studio,” a ‘micro residence’ for mobile work and exhibition for Bay Area artists. Check out its tiny tour at http://www.rangestudio.org/.

Show Notes:

The creation of the mobile art studio arose out of necessity: as an artist with a growing family, David Szlasa was looking for a place to hone his craft that wouldn’t cramp his wife or sons in their small Oakland home. The first “Range Studio” was aptly named “Studio 1” and offered micro residencies to professional Bay Area artists seeking a portable work and exhibition space. The tiny house trekked between several points around Civic Center in San Francisco, featuring a new artist every week for a total of six. We first even became aware of it when Dom and Aya saw it parked at the corner of 10th and Mission.

David’s knowledge spans video lighting, video design, and large scale video. His client base includes the Berkeley Repertory Theater, Stanford University, and Yerba Buena Center for Arts.

But this guy’s got some crazy stories too. After a little fireside-chatting, we got down to business and found out about David’s early (aka shell-shocked) life when he first arrived in New York. We learned he partied in the desert and that he and Aya knew the same guy called “Crutchmaster.”

Talk about a wildly small world.
