    Loc Dao wouldn’t know a good story if it hit him over the head. He’s one of the problems with the industry. For all of his talk of warmth, he’s responsible for some of the coldest product out there. Our company would never work with him again. He steals anything good, crushes the competition with slander and is not worth considering.
