Your hometown // I was born in a province town in Balanga Bataan, Philippines. But I live in Lethbridge Park, NSW

Day Job // Production Manager in Kwik Kopy Circular Quay and side job as a photographer.

Weapon of choice // Canon 750D, Canon Zoom Lens EF-S 18-135mm IS STM, Canon EF LENS 50mm STM

Inspirations //  Firstly what inspired me to be adventurous was when I climbed my first mountain at Mt. Niseko Annupuri, Japan in 2008. Inspiration is everywhere, from adventure seekers like Jordan Romero, world record holder for the youngest kid ever to climb all 8 Summits on each continent, photographers like Jimmy Chin and local photographer Jim Picot. Writers such as David Attenborough, communities that show cases hidden treasures such as We are Explorers & Wild Swimming Australia are all very awe-inspiring. But most of all the stories I tell people of where I’ve been inspires me because it makes me keep on going and visiting places that I’ve never been too and tell them more stories. All it takes is just one single step outside of your backyard.

Dream adventure location to shoot in Australia //  Hire a RV Van and travel around Tasmania.

Nugget of wisdom for aspiring photographers // Try everything. Shoot everything from, Landscape, street, fashion etc. You just won’t know it unless you give it a shot.

Couple of photographers actually saw me as they were driving up and down the bridge trying to look for the same spot. So we met, we chatted, we shot. One good thing about exploring, is you get to meet new people." #weareexplorers

One of the happiest moment of my life. Felt like I was a kid again. As they say "have a end in mind". And this was exactly what I had in mind. " #weareexplorers

Got lost at one point climbing down the cliff face without any harness. So we decided to climb back up and find the right way, which we did. Then another vertical descend. I love finding wild swimming holes." #weareexplorers
