History

In high school I felt I had potential in programming because of the speed in which I debugged basic programs written in C Language during Computer class.

In my early teenage years, websites fascinated me and I wanted to try making my own. My very first experience in coding was with HTML and CSS.
I took an IT degree in college and the programming classes made me realize that I really enjoy coding. I did a mix of website design and coding before I landed my first job.

I worked on numerous WordPress sites in my first job for a telecommunication company. This was when I realized that I’m better at coding than designing. 2 years later, I moved to a new workplace in Makati City initially as web developer. A couple of years later, I joined the mobile development team as Android developer.
