Q&A with Yun Tai

What is your favorite book of all time? 

I would have to pick The Obstacle Is The Way by Ryan Holiday. It’s a fun read about the benefits of adversity.

What is your favorite place in Chicago that isn't a typical tourist destination?

I’m a big fan of mom-and-pop locales, so I’d have to go with Lincoln Square. It feels like a small town out there, and it’s a great place to go if you need a break from the ‘big’ city.

Would you rather have the office stocked 24/7 with Starbucks coffee or Garrett popcorn? 

Yikes, I’m going to have to opt out of this one and go with Rice Krispies Treats. I run into the kitchen at least once a day to see if they’ve been restocked.

One thing people in the world wouldn't know about you? 

I’m a huge comic book nerd. Give me two hours to do whatever I want, and you’ll probably find me reading a stack of comics.

If you could live anywhere else in the world where would it be? 

Glenwood Springs, Colorado. I love being outdoors and Glenwood Springs offers plenty of that. It’s a small river town with great rock climbing routes and trail running paths; there’s never a dull moment!
