Syrus is a master’s student at NCCU, an event photographer within the drag community, and an Iranian-American who grew up in Southern California. Throughout the years, Syrus has been lucky enough to get the chance to travel widely and returned to Taipei because he fell in love with the city and the people in it. Syrus’s aspiration with filmmaking is to get the opportunity one day to adapt some of the books he has read and make them into feature films.
