TEDx Berkeley Piano Performance

It was an absolute honor to be invited to perform piano at the TEDx Berkeley event! Thank you Jessica Mah and her team for organizing such an incredible conference.

My biography that was shown on the TEDx website and event program book.

Outside the TEDx Berkeley auditorium.

The packed auditorium! What a great turn out!

Me performing piano! This is a very cool angle and photograph-fantastic job on the part of the photographer!

My friend took this photo of an audience member who was sketching a portrait of me while I was performing on stage!

Apparently, there is a video of my piano performance at TEDx Berkeley floating around YouTube haha

What are the TED conferences?

TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) is a global set of conferences owned by the private non-profit Sapling Foundation, formed to disseminate “ideas worth spreading.”

TED was founded in 1984 as a one-off event, and the conference was held annually from 1990 in Monterey, California. TED’s early emphasis was largely technology and design, consistent with a Silicon Valley center of gravity. The events are now held in Long Beach and Palm Springs in the U.S. as well as in Europe and Asia, offering live streaming of the talks. They address an increasingly wide range of topics within the research and practice of science and culture. The speakers are given a maximum of 18 minutes to present their ideas in the most innovative and engaging ways they can. Past presenters include Bill Clinton, Jane Goodall, Malcolm Gladwell, Al Gore, Gordon Brown, Richard Dawkins, Bill Gates, educator Salman Khan, Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, and many Nobel Prize winners.
