Bio

I’m essentially a Business Administration graduate turned Software Engineer. Over the years, I gained experience in software development and design. As an open source enthusiast since 2003, I have contributed to various projects and still do.

I love studying Culture, Business, Computer Science, Software Engineering, Design, Yoga, Psychology, Finance, Music and a lot more!

Other Facts:

  1. Voracious reader. I read at least 120 books every year. Most of which are non-fiction.
  2. Nomadic. I have been traveling a lot and live in a different place of interest in my country (The Philippines) or another country.
  3. Multi-racial polyglot. I can speak in 3 languages.
  4. Product designer who can build applications. I spend a lot of time creating and improving software. Since day one, I was not drawn to this industry for the wrong reasons. I like to build useful applications.
  5. Introverted and trying to live off-the-grid. I used to be an introvert living off-the-grid. Still an introvert but I live in Sydney now, and I find that I actually like being around some people on some days. It’s very healthy to talk to people regardless of your state of mind.
  6. Trying to be humane, not just human. I believe only the paranoid survive but survival is such a poor goal for a human being.
  7. Because of number 5 fact, I don’t like being asked many questions. But if it’s not about me, I’d probably answer. I am very active in Quora.
