On this episode of This Filipino American Life we continue our Bay Area invasion and talk story with Filipino Americans in the Cannabis industry, as well as address the tech boom that’s associated with Silicon Valley and the many companies who dominate the area.  Nina Parks of Mirage Medicinal educates the crew about how her work goes beyond the product and is also a lifestyle brand. This is followed by our conversation with Carlo De La Fuente who highlights his experiences in San Francisco’s rapidly growing tech field.
