Bio Profile

Iā€™m an NJ-NYC based fullstack developer who loves to bring ideas to life on the web. With a weird mix of experiences in corporate strategy, project and artist management, my background has enabled me to take on a macro and micro perspective to building software.

I immigrated from the Philippines in 2007 and graduated from NYU in 2019 with a B.A. in Sociology and a Minor in Web Programming and Applications. While in school, I was heavily involved in the music scene and worked as a part-time artist manager for MIA GLADSTONE. After a scheduling mixup in college, I needed to take an extra class to fulfill my credits. Out of curiousity, I took an intro to web programming course and have never looked back since
