There are many things around us that have been designed through out time, often enough becoming artifacts to our existence. As a designer, the understanding of the holistic potentials of many objects and the technology behind their construction can be adapted in many scales, allowing diverse and flexible uses.

I was born and raised in the Philippines.
I moved in the US 7 years ago.

I have direct experience in various working environments including hospital, nursing home, pharmaceutical factory, retail store, restaurant and educational facilities.

I have been curious and fascinated with design in general and architecture.
I aspire to use my talent to help the unfortunate.
