Taipei Love Notes》作者:William Yang

William writes about technology for a living, but has his mind set on writing about human rights and culture for life. He enjoys storytelling and is always intrigued by the untold stories of some of the most seemingly ordinary individuals. When he has time to himself he also reads, dabbles in photography, and plays tennis and volleyball. He began his career as a writer and has no plan of stopping.
William 在科技業工作,心之所向卻是為人權發聲及文化探索而寫作。他是個說書者,也被無數的故事及平凡人物的日常所著迷。偶爾,他也是個書痴、涉略一些攝影、網球和排球的愛好者。身為作者之路正在起步,看似無止盡的持續著。
