About Me


My research and academic skills together with hands-on practical experience enable me to connect between theory and practice of green economy and environmental sustainability in general, and in the tourism sector in particular.

Currently, I am the General Manager of Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC), while also conducting research on Community Based Ecotourism and benefit distribution of Atayal Indigenous People in Taiwan. Before that, I was researching sustainable development and green growth institutional framework at UN-ESCAP, Environment and Development Policy Section.

I strive for more happiness in the world, a goal larger than my own personal life, inspiring and making a difference in the lives of people. It guides me in my work-life and people interaction, benefiting all. Either by my work I have done in interfaith dialogue, empower asylum-seekers, or by my passion for green economy and sustainable tourism. Little steps can be made to lead us together into a better and more sustainable world.
