I'm proud and originally from Palawan-- the Philippines' last frontier. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science and spent my first years behind web programming. On 2004, I moved to Dubai and worked for a landscaping company. Year 2005 is when I become passionate about photography. The rest is history. I am based now in Doha but travel for projects around the globe.
For fifteen (15) years, it's been a wild ride and I am incredibly grateful for the opportunities that I've been given along the way. I’m an approved brand photographer for MARRIOTT, KEMPINSKI and FRASER SUITES; with various works in other brands like FOUR SEASONS, ACCOR, SHANGRI-LA to name a few.
I’m a big fan of Food and Travel. They both are not just about sustenance or enjoyment. It’s about exploration, culture, authenticity and experience. I am fortunate to meet and worked with world class Chefs such as Nobu Matsuhisa, Vineet Bhatia, Tom Aikens and Ramzi Choueiri during the Qatar Airway’s Culinary in the Sky. And other Michelin / Celebrity Chefs or their outlets like Masaharu Morimoto, Richard Sandoval, Wolfgang Puck, Jean Georges and Niko Romito.
