Short Bio

Dr. Choo enjoys learning and teaching. When thinking about an idea, he has a habit of ignoring traditional academic boundaries.

Music enters the discussion of philosophical ideas. Philosophy tends to enter in all areas. Currently, he is trying to learn to garden, though very clumsily. Learning, however, is joyous for him.
