I first fell in love with words at seven years old when my mom handed me my very first Pocahontas journal. At 16, I went "digital" by starting this blog and now it contains not only my life's most precious moments but also work I have done over the years.
I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in International Marketing Minor in Public Relations from American City University and also have a Diploma in Advertising from London City College. I am currently completing my Master's Degree in Education Major in Language and Literacy from the University of the Philippines.
Having been working for over ten years, I have had experience in the fields of retail, education, customer service, and communications. My work in the best communications agencies including three time agency of the year Strategic Works in Manila has given me the opportunity to work on favorite international brands such as Coca-Cola, Nickelodeon, Singapore Tourism Board, Crocs Philippines, Nestle, Jollibee, SMART Gilas Pilipinas, and Shangri-La Group of Hotels.
Prior to joining the agency, I have had experience as a college professor, educational therapist for special children, and a project manager for the English Language Center of Southville Foreign University. I have also helped build the communication strategies of tech start ups such as Raket. PH and Blumr.
My written work is featured every Sunday under the Filipino Champions section of The Manila Times where I am a Lifestyle Columnist. My work has also been featured on CNN Philippines, SLAM Magazine, Thought Catalog, Philippine Star, the Philippine Daily Inquirer, and Manila Bulletin. I also expressed my love for the country by being the Managing Editor of Juan.com.ph until 2016.
I'm a pop culture enthusiast, fitness junkie, literary nerd, and a big sports fan. I love Jesus and committed to letting everyone know that He loves them too.
