SPEAKER: Michael Angelo Zervos

Michael has worked in the film and television industry for more than 12 years as a director and producer. He's worked with people like Eminem, Denzel Washington, James Hardin, and Kristen Stewart, as well as with Fortune 50 companies like Ford, Google, and Activision Blizzard.

He has many hobbies ranging from cooking to boxing. He has lived in 6 cities in the last eight years, though now he is homeless. Currently he is traveling to every country in the world collecting stories about human happiness while also trying to break a Guinness World Record.

SPEAKING TOPIC: Breaking a Guinness World Record

Michael is in the middle of a quest to travel to every country in the world in the quickest period of time. Taylor Demonbreun currently holds the GWR with a record time of 1 year and 189 days. Michael plans to break that record to all 193 countries.

In addition, he is on a quest to document global happiness. The Project Kosmos. He will be conducting a live interview at the event.

"I’m traveling to every country in the world to collect stories about happiness, asking just one question to everyone I meet in each place: what is the happiest moment of your life?

It can be a minute, hour, day, or year of your life. I’m just looking for a story about a specific moment in your life.

And, if you’re not interested in participating (Thais only), I’d still be happy to meet you"
