I grew up in Hong Kong as a Canadian and graduated from the University of Edinburgh with a Master of Arts (Honours) in English Language. In an unexpected turn of events, I became a FCCA (Fellow of Chartered Certified Accountant). Life led me to Vancouver, B.C., where I graduated from Regent College with a Master of Divinity. I am now completing my Doctor of Philosophy (Divinity) at the University of St. Andrews, under the supervision of Dr John Perry and Professor Mario Aguilar in the Centre for the Study of Religion and Politics.
