About me

I am currently living in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. I work for Transparency International Cambodia as full time staff. Beside working for an NGO like Transparency International Cambodia, who fights against corruption, I like to involve in the society. I have been involving with social movement for many years, because voluntarily helps to inspire people to do social work for social good.

I have joined the Google Developer Group (GDG Phnom Penh) as a co-organizer, which responsible for organizing Google Cloud Developer Challenge (GCDC) and Android DevCamp. I organized GCDC in October 2013 and also was a guest speaker as well. I am preparing again with my team to organize Android DevCamp (using Hackathon theme) this year, probably in early June.

I founded Tech-Change - Technology for social change and currently a project director in late November 2013. It is a project for building websites for NGOs at no charge.
