DIRECTOR / CINEMATOGRAPHER
I can be one or the other. I’m a romantic but also try to be a badass. Growing up in a small country like the Philippines, watching movies and MTV were my escape. I remember fondly those late hours just dreaming of projects before I go to bed. It’s like dreaming but with your eyes wide open. Now living in Los Angeles and considers the world as my playground, I get inspired by every single thing. Being mindful of my surroundings and the moment inspires me. A song that I will just listen to can inspire thousands more ideas out of me. Passion and a relentless search for something more are what drive my craft. Your story, your vision, I try to hold it in my heart trying to be in your shoes on what you would want to see. I find it very oddly satisfying when my client tells me that they cry tears of joy after watching my film, it means I did my job well because it made him/her get back to the moment that was very special.
I graduated with a Master of Fine Arts in Film for Directing and Cinematography at Art Center College of Design Pasadena and BS in Marketing Management from De La Salle University.
