Paul Frankenstein

I was born in Hong Kong. By the time I was six, I'd lived in four cities on three continents, learned four languages and forgotten three of them. I have a B.A. in Oriental Studies from the University of Arizona and have traveled extensively in Asia and Europe. I now live in New York, where I'm a student at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. My personal blog lives at paulfrankenstein.org.
