Tao is one of the most interesting people I know. His father hung with Fellini, Brigit Bardot, and Dali. Tao's family tree goes back 1200 years. He got guitar advice from Keith Richards, hangs with Oliver Stone, and he was married to film/TV star Olivia Wilde. He makes films about his passions—which range from philosophy to flamenco to the nature of love and marriage.
