I studied and graduated with a degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of San Carlos in 2013. I’ve always loved sharing useful and interesting content, so I launched a WordPress.com blog way back in 2009 that focused primarily on the local scene.

I landed my first job working for a global printing and solutions company as a material specialist and eventually progressed to a business systems analyst. I also had a short stint as a systems analyst for a start-up company. I then applied at Yoast, and after some tests and interviews, when Taco told me that they would be happy to have me as a part of the team, I immediately grabbed the opportunity.

Working as a support engineer at Yoast has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. I’ve learned so much and I really think we’re making the web a better place by leveraging the playing field with what we do. It doesn’t matter if you are a big or small website, with Yoast, the goal is to truly make SEO available for everyone.

I currently live in the sunny island of Cebu, Philippines. I enjoy spending my free time with my girlfriend, family, friends, and my dog. I enjoy playing sports like basketball, badminton, and biking. I also have interests and hobbies such as video games, technology, mechanical keyboards, watches, sneakers, blogging, playing the guitar, and traveling.
