Skills and Facts in numbers
Throughout my university days, I engaged in freelance performances as a host in various student or corporate events like Youth for Information Technology or Y4IT. I also directed and wrote a play, “Ang Bola ni Niko Bibo” for the socio civic student organization UP Lakan; then I braved the acting industry in ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corporation and other independent film outfits such as CinemaOne Originals, AmBisyon 2010 and HUBO productions.
In Singapore, I further studied acting via a certificate course in Lasalle College for the Arts. Eventually I had my acting debut in Point of Entry, followed by Code of Law and Crime Watch in Mediacorp. It was also such a great privilege to be one of the actors in Iloilo, a full length Singaporean film which won the Camera d’or award at the Cannes Film Festival. Currently based in Germany, I acted in a theater play under the English Drama Group production of the Foreign Languages Department of Philipps Universität Marburg. Afterwards, I take usually acting and modeling projects for different companies and institutions.
