Albert grew up in Southern California where he was high school valedictorian and attended the University of California, Irvine. He later came back to Hong Kong after a few years of work and obtained his master’s degree in economics at City University.

On becoming a teacher:
I became a teacher to help students achieve high standards of education in economics. Inspired by many of my own teachers, I hope to extend the lessons and wisdom imparted upon me by previous generations. I enjoy helping students with their struggles and obtaining a high level of achievement. I feels that most students want a challenge and to find meaning in their work and bringing economics into the real world allows students to come to a fuller understanding of the subject and relevance in life. I also have a passion for learning new things. Whether it be music, culture, or media, a thirst for knowledge and world experience keeps teaching economics fresh.

Favourite Economist:
My favourite economist is F.A. Hayek for showing that “The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine they can design.”

An inspirational person:
Sherpa Tenzing Norgay for being the first person ever to climb Mount Everest. In 1953, Norgay took part in John Hunt's expedition, the latter's seventh expedition to Everest. A member of the team was Edmund Hillary, who had a near-miss following a fall into a crevasse but was saved from hitting the bottom by Norgay's prompt action in securing the rope using his ice axe, which led Hillary to consider him the climbing partner of choice for any future summit attempt.

“ It has been a long road ... From a mountain coolie, a bearer of loads, to a wearer of a coat with rows of medals who is carried about in planes and worries about income tax. ”
— Tenzing Norgay
