The great untold stories from our city.

NEEBA has teamed up with Metro Silicon Valley to release the mini-documentary, “This is San Jose.” A series documenting the vibrant people and culture outside of the tech bubble. We spent the past year speaking with those that have made a positive impact on their community. Each episode will focus on the emotional and professional journeys of a single local business owner or leader. These episodes are just the beginning, we hope to tell more of the city’s diverse businesses.

Episode 1 – Humble Beginnings

Cukui Clothing Company and Humble Beginnings Tattoo founder, Orly Locquiao, shares his life story and how his art reflects his life, his culture and his city.
