I was born in 1981, in Hong Kong. I have lived in Hong Kong; Prievidza, Slovakia; Trieste, Italy before coming to the US in 2003. I received my pre-college education in Hong Kong (O-level) and Italy at the United World College of the Adriatic (IB). I received my BA (summa cum laude) in Philosophy from University of Northern Iowa, and my PhD in Philosophy from Vanderbilt University. Since Fall 2014, I have been an Assistant Professor (TT) in philosophy at Iona College, New Rochelle.
