Heyyaa Interweb!

About me

👋 Hello there ! I'm a software developer turned project manager based in Manila, Philippines. I've been in the industry since 2015 and started as a systems analyst and a developer for PSbank , then moved to Rappler, an online news agency, first as a software developer, then accidentally turned into the head of their technology operations.

How I work

Like most of the people in the tech world, I am usually powered by caffeine, a nightowl, always love to discuss ideas with the team and zone out when I need to get my hands dirty.

Areas of Interests

Aside from being in the publishing tech, and has experience in fintech, I am very much interested in web3 and esports. And heyy, I'm actively looking for opportunities!
