ABOUT

I’m a writer, editor, and author in the Philippines with a strong background in publishing and digital content strategy & development.

I’m currently the head of the publishing department of a top global research institute with headquarters in Australia, Middle East, Asia, and Europe.

My work has appeared in major broadsheets such as The Philippine Daily Inquirer and The Manila Bulletin; leading lifestyle magazines such as Metro Society; and websites, including The Huffington Post, GMA News Online, CNN Philippines, and Rappler. I have written for trade and industry publications distributed across Asia, namely Asian Banking and Finance, Business and Commerce Asia, and Asia Fund Managers.

As a digital strategist, I plan, create, and publish content for various platforms using my experience in project management, basic graphic design and video editing, and stat-backed credentials in social media management, community engagement, and other digital marketing campaigns. In every project, I value in-depth research, feedback loop, and open collaboration.

As an editor, I have provided editing and proofreading services for a diverse range of clients: grammar and writing websites, an events management firm in Singapore, and one of Asia’s leading e-commerce travel platforms.

I also write poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction. Some of my poems are published in The Manila Times and The Philippines Graphic. My piece “Calendars” is featured in My Lot is A Sky, an anthology published in Singapore and written by female poets from all over Asia. My first poetry collection, Breakaways, was released in 2019.
