Born in Kharkiv, Ukraine to a Vietnamese father and a Ukrainian mother, he was raised in the wealthier part of the country. Growing up with an interest in physics, he eventually began dreaming of visiting the city of London to explore its wonders. He got that opportunity when he was granted entry into an unnamed university in the city. Being of mixed parentage he was taught from a young age to learn as many languages as he could to get a greater understanding of the world.
