My photos reflect the eye and heart of a Filipino who grew up in a farm near the edge of a forest. I moved to the city when I reached my teens (I have lived in Manila, Jakarta, Toronto, and Houston but I am now based in Glendale, California), and the bulk of my career was mainly in providing strategic planning consulting. I found working on projects for non-profit organizations the most fulfilling though. By some twist of fate, I also got immersed in managing the marketing of a leading sportswear brands where I got exposed to the blending of technology, sports, fashion, music, and photography.
After several decades in my career journey, I started seriously honing my photography skills through self-directed learning in 2009. I nobly said to the world that I am a ready to be a photographer in 2013. Since then I have been wondering, continuously learning and re-focusing on how to share stories through images that give value to the gifts of each moment and each person.
