Philip Chen was born in China in 1944 and immigrated to the United States in 1949. Growing up in Washington, D.C., during the 1950s and 1960s, Philip learn both the pains and triumphs of American society at a crucial turning point in America's history. After receiving a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering with Distinction from the University of Virginia and a Master of Science from Stanford University, he worked as an ocean research engineer in the development of deep submergence systems. Part of his work dealt with vehicles that could freely dive to 20,000 feet of water depth. He also participated as a hyperbaric chamber operator for manned dives inside a pressure chamber to 1,500 feet. He holds one U.S. Patent for an underwater mooring system.

After his stint as an ocean research engineer, Philip was an environmental and energy engineer, a trial attorney, a public securities attorney, an investment banker, a corporate executive, a private equity manager (in Africa), a strategic consultant, a cartoonist, an illustrator, a website manager, and author. He received his law degree from the University of Minnesota.

One of his mentors once told Philip that it wasn't that he couldn't hold down a job; he couldn't even hold down a career!

Philip's biography has been included in Who's Who in America and in Who's Who in the World for many years.

"Happy Holidaze and Other Tragedies of Life" is the second volume of cartoons from "There is Strangeness in the Universe (TM)." This book is not recommended for anyone who wants to continue in the belief that one tiny elf can circumnavigate the entire globe delivering gifts to almost two billion children in a single night using only carbon based organisms for propulsion. These cartoons are a light-hearted and satirical look at life. The cartoon series was conceived in response to a real astronomical theory that a parallel universe filled with strange matter must exist in order for our own to maintain cosmic balance.
