what’s with the key?

I’m originally from the Philippines, but I grew up in Northeastern Ohio of the US. I am a freelance photographer, writer, and digital nerd based in Bali, Indonesia. I contribute to news, wellness, travel, and photography agencies. My photography has been exhibited in Bali, Europe, and the US. Before morphing into a freelancer, I slung code and managed web teams for Fortune 500 companies.

My favourite meditations are a good book with a cappuccino, feeding stray cats and dogs, and wishing to be a rock star in my next life. I would be very disappointed if you were in Bali and didn’t meet me for a coffee.
