Personal Biography

Eric grew up in New York City, where adventures were always just a subway ride away. Even then, he wanted to learn how different people lived and thought, so he has travelled and lived in the opposite side of the world in Shanghai, Beijing, and Tokyo.

He loves classical music, having professionally studied classical piano for 12 years, graduated from the Manhattan School of Music Precollege, and won a national competition to perform at Carnegie Hall. Passionate about academic empowerment, he has served extensively as a tutor for underprivileged communities.

Although he is both a cat and a dog person, Eric is particularly fond of corgis. In his free time, he enjoys reading books, hiking and camping, and sampling cuisines from different cultures.
