To share a brief background about myself and my experience, my family and I have been living in the Philippines since I was nine years old where I went to school and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Marketing and Corporate Communications. After my graduation in 2009, I joined a print publishing company as Creative Director. While there, I contributed my talent in graphic design while overseeing the development, production, and publication of the monthly magazine. Shortly into my time there, I was given the opportunity to write feature articles, exclusive interviews, and reviews for new gadgets and relevant new media in the market. Two years later, I was fortunate to be hired as the Senior Graphic Artist for their Creative Solutions arm with a focus on advertising and design requirements by one of the largest publishing groups in the Philippines, which handled the local editions of prestigious magazine brands namely Esquire, Cosmopolitan and Town & Country Magazines, among other titles. Less than a year in, I was identified for a promotion to the position of Publisher for their children’s magazine titles, namely Disney Magazine, K-Zone, and Total Girl. After spending another few years in publishing, an opportunity to change industries and focus my efforts in Corporate Communications presented itself where I took on the role of Communications Executive and a year later, Communication Manager for a prestigious 5-star hotel in the Philippines. In these past few years, I have found myself craving and wanting to achieve my childhood wish of becoming a visual artist. Though my knowledge and capabilities in art over the years have all been self-taught, I finally took the leap and resigned from my job in the hotel industry to go to school at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco to take up my Masters in Visual Development with the end goal of becoming a concept artist for movies and games. Though it may have been a significant risk to shift my life and career, I feel it was the right move for me. So here I am, doing what I love. ...more
