Antonio works at the USCBC office in Beijing. He graduated from the College of William and Mary in 2014 with a major in Chinese language and a minor in Process Management and Consulting. From 2014-2016 Antonio lived in Chengde, Hebei Province and taught at the Hebei Normal University for Nationalities as an ESL teacher. Following his time in Chengde, he attended Nankai University under the Chinese Government Scholarship and received a master’s degree in International Relations.
After four years studying the language, Antonio wanted to experience China for himself and decided to teach English in Hebei Province. The experience allowed him to be immersed in Chinese culture while growing to understand the critical role US-China relations has in maintaining global stability. That role is very much a work in progress, and Antonio has rolled up his sleeves along with his USCBC colleagues.
He enjoys working with USCBC members and providing them regular updates on his very timely research into China’s cybersecurity and data policies.
In his free time Antonio enjoys reading fiction, gaming, and is always up for a game of badminton. Contact him about securing court time when next in Beijing, and read a sample of his analyses in this article on China’s MLPS 2.0 review scheme in USCBC’s China Business Review Magazine.
