Favourite food?

I hate to be cliché here, but I’m a real sucker for a good old-fashioned slice of pepperoni pizza. That being said, I do come from a very rich food culture in Colombia, so I appreciate all types foods and will try anything once; even snails or grasshoppers.

Don’t knock it till you try it. AMIRITE?!

Paul Davidescu

CEO/Founder

Paul was born in sunny Mexico City and has grandparents from Romania, Bulgaria, Syria, and Turkey - one can say that he likes many different kinds of cuisines and cultures.

The rare moments he is not eating as the Chief Eating Officer, he works on recruiting new clients, staff, and partners into the Tangoo community. The big change he believes that Tangoo can make on the world is to "break barriers by breaking bread"; whether it be learning about another culture through food or using the dinner table as the perfect opportunity to spark new entrepreneurial ideas and deeper relationships within people and the community.

Favourite Food?

As a passionate foodie, it’s impossible to water it down to ONE dish... but I would never turn down fried chicken and rice.

Jason Yeh

NOMS Magazine Managing Editor

Jason founded NOMS Magazine, one of Tangoo's latest internal projects, and points a small black box at food sometimes when he wants to grow the video content and magazine.  He is sort of a self-learning nut. After 7 years of studying Criminology, he made a complete career shift into Digital Marketing and Photography by learning through online resources. Through quick bursts of self-learning and volunteer work to build up his skills, he regularly shoots for Fortune 500 companies like McDonald's, Virgin Mobile; JP Morgan Chase; and Nestle. When he's not on set of a photoshoot or sitting in aesthetic cafes, you might catch him wandering the city to find the next new and novel photoshoot locations.

Favourite Food?

If it has noodles - it is my favourite. I am OK with eating noodles everyday for the rest of my life.
