About me

I earned close to a decade of experience working with different companies, businesses, and agencies building the website for their own business or for their clients.

As a software developer, I helped companies improve their business by optimizing their current website or rebuilding it with modern standards which improved its performance that resulted in increased traffic and engagement, saved time, reduced customer complaints, and increased productivity among others.

I am a listener first; a doer second. I want to hear and understand the challenges from the people directly in the field so that I can work with the great people around me to create meaningful improvements that make the business of my clients grow.

Hobbies

Freediving

I saw videos of people swimming to the ocean floor without scuba gear, which piqued my interest. I then discovered that it's called freediving. I learned it, and now, when I have free time, I go to different freediving spots in the Philippines with my friends and wife. I want to learn to surf next time.

Hiking

The Philippines has a lot of mountainous and dense places with natural bodies of water like falls and rivers, making it perfect for hiking while appreciating the work of nature. Afterward, you can dip in the water to relieve the exhaustion, then stay the night to camp, watch the clear night sky free from city lights, and sleep through the noise of the jungle.

Binge Watching

When I'm not out but still want to take a break from things, I watch movies, TV series, and animes. I liked watching psychological, sci-fi, and mystery genres, especially the shows where you would learn something new that you can use in the real world.
