After spending 10 years working on transportation, urban development and geographic information systems projects in Asia, Gavin relocated to Oakland to help launch Ford GoBike. After successfully building the regional Ford GoBike operation and launching e-bikes he is currently attending the Master of Urban Planning program at San Jose State University. As a Downtown Oakland D3 resident, Gavin hopes to combine his newly acquired local planning knowledge with his East Asian experience to improve transportation in Oakland. He is passionate about sustainable transportation and in his free time can be found walking around Lake Merritt or exploring hikes in the East Bay hills using public transit.
