Corey Sheridan grew up on a farm in Central Ohio. He attended college in Upstate New York. Then moved to Shanghai, China in 2007. But up until then none of his previous experiences prepared him for the concrete and glass jungle of Shanghai.

“I honestly can’t even remember doing any research on Shanghai apart from locating it on a map,” Corey explains on his website. “Driving from the airport to the university where I’d spend the next three months, I was taken in by the sheer number of tall skyscrapers and apartment blocks.
