I am passionate about:
Storytelling. On weekdays, I work with a leading communications firm developing strategies and stories for new and established brands. On weekends, I write short stories and shoot and edit videos for personal projects and for friends.
A little known fact about me is:
Friends call me Yaan, from the Tagalog word "Kalayaan" which means freedom. I was born around the time of the EDSA revolution.

I am a bilocal. Born in Manila. Living in Manila. But roughed it out in New York City and came out of it alive and better. I am excited by innovation, inspired by kindness, impressed by humility, and driven by collaboration and mentorship.
I am curious about people, cultures, brands, and I enjoy building a career around telling their stories.
