About the author

Eric Bright is a voracious learner and a polymath. He is a world traveller and has studied in Dubai, Iran, Australia, and Canada. His diverse background helps to amplify and elevate the quality of his work and demonstrates a breadth that is rare in today's world of narrow specialisation. Born in Tehran, Iran, in 1977, Eric is the oldest of three siblings. He has a warm spot in a close-knit, talented, and supportive family, whose bonds were melded by struggling together through and beyond the Iran-Iraq war. At one point, the family had to flee for safety and to quickly find a new home for dogs who were their trusted security guards and much loved members of the family. As a young boy, Eric spent much of his time at Dehkhoda High School, a leading private school in Tehran, where his peers and instructors referred to him as Doctor, since he was always accompanied by medical texts and aiming to master the nuances of the human body. When he was not at school, he was adding to what would become an immense and deeply beloved personal library he would have to part with when he moved to Vancouver, B.C. in 2004. When he wasn't busy with his books, the young Eric was in hiding, secretly learning to play the piano at a time and place when doing so was illegal and dangerous. These experiences have left defining marks on his character.

Eric is now a Canadian citizen, accomplished pianist, and an advocate for the amelioration of the human condition. He has achieved a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Engineering, Agronomy and Plant Breeding/Genetics and a Masters in International Business. He has enhanced his education by taking advanced post-baccalaureate studies in Philosophy, with an emphasis on logic under the tutelage of Ray Jennings, a world renowned logician. With many years of intense study, both formal and informal, Eric has developed competence in biology, psychology, genetics, evolutionary theory, marketing, and religious studies. He has worked as a high school teacher, film director, counsellor, video producer, photographer, computer technician and analyst, and he is a member of the council of Wingtzun Kung Fu. Most importantly, despite all of his impressive and far-ranging accomplishments, he is humble, kind, and personable.
