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 web developer 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.
