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 in web programming. On 2004, I moved to Dubai and worked for a Contracting company. Year 2005 is when I become passionate about photography. The rest is history.
For sixteen (16) 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 and its ERS (Luxury Brands: THE RITZ-CARLTON, W and Premium Brand: MEA), KEMPINSKI and FRASER SUITES; with numerous works in different Brands such as 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 worked with world class F&B Restaurants, Celebrity / Michelin Chefs such as Nobu Matsuhisa, Vineet Bhatia, Tom Aikens and Ramzi Choueiri during the Qatar Airway’s Culinary in the Sky; various culinary team with Wolfgang Puck, Jean Georges, Masaharu Morimoto, Richard Sandoval and Niko Romito.
Apart from photography, I do scuba diving & dream of becoming a Sommelier someday. I am single & my birthdate is April 3.
