Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! I'm an English teacher residing in the Taipei area. I'm
typically considered an overseas Chinese because of the 20+some
years that I spent growing up abroad. Despite a predominately
western education, I'm also in touch with my Chinese roots as well,
and would consider myself to be fluently bilingual.
My story in a nutshell would be that I'm a son of a diplomat for
the ministry of foreign affairs, so as one could imagine, I have a
very nomadic upbringing. Growing up in many different countries
gave me a richer perspective and worldly knowledge. But obtaining
that has its price too. The drawback of being a foreign affairs
brat is that you grow up with an ambivalent sense of cultural
identity. I appreciate people who can relate to this. I find small
town girls who never flown on an airplane or traveled outside of
their home country to be... ignorantly blissful. I find it harder
to relate to people like that.

-How to redesign our current world order; how to unite the world
and abolish the artificial borders that separate people and
nations, just like the internet, a globalized network.

-Predicting the future and the foreseeable consequences in the near
future, like once fossil fuels are depleted, machines replace human
labor, AI advances to the point where they displace human jobs, the
next great depression and financial disaster that inevitably
follows, the beginning of a new world order or a revolution. I can
write a book about it.

-How to play and master this game of financial prosperity, then
retire early to try out a new kind of lifestyle... like how to
pursue an alternative lifestyle living off the grid, not like a

and/or significant other.
