He earned his Juris Doctor from Seattle University School of Law and his undergraduate degree from the University of Washington Foster School of Business.

He has been working closely with WeGO member cities to help them pursue Smart Sustainable Solutions through e-Government Training Programs, CeDS(City e-Government Diagnostic & Solution Online Platform), and WeGO’s Feasibility Study Projects (2015 Focus Area: Civic Participation System for Hanoi, San Fernando, Quezon).

Presentation abstract:

WeGO is promoting sustainable urban development based on e-Government and ICT through Digital Capacity Building, IT Consultation & Pilot Projects, Knowledge Sharing & Networking, and WeGO’s International e-Government Competition (WeGO Awards). WeGO’s member cities have come up with creative and interesting solutions to build Smart Sustainable Cities: Seoul’s “Night Owl Bus”; Frankfurt’s “Frankfurt Asks Me” civic participation system; and Seongnam’s “Comprehensive Digitized Outstanding Tax Collection System.” WeGO’s members are going from visions of Smart Sustainable Cities to reality.
