Many years of practical experience developing business, media, culture and education projects between Taiwan, and the USA (and other countries) gives me the insight and connections to successfully guide almost anyone who wants to launch a project in Taiwan. My life has been dedicated to being a bridge for Americans and English-speaking foreigners to all of the wonders, technologies, opportunities that the diverse island has to offer.
I fell in love with Taiwan while producing Voices In The Clouds, an internationally award-winning documentary film about the discover of the indigenous peoples and culture of Taiwan. This was a formative experience which bonded my spirit with the place and the people. You can see my Wikipedia page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Coolidge) to see some of what has been created here.
Entrepreneur, writer, journalist and organizer with extensive training and coaching experience in the USA, I relocated to Taiwan in 2009 to establish a series of projects between, Taiwan, the USA and other countries. My non-profit organization (ATAYAL/Indigenous Bridges) was established in 2001 to connect the indigenous tribes of Taiwan with those in North America and the world. Through the development of media, cultural exchange, and business projects, with cooperation from the governmental, academic and business sectors, we have produced lasting results and developed meaningful relationships. Anyone considering doing business or sourcing in Taiwan can benefit greatly from my consulting/coaching services.
