I am a location sound recordist and a sound designer based in the Philippines. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Education from the University of the Philippines Diliman. After working for more than 3 years in the health and fitness industry, I decided to break rank and pursue my true passion: sound and music. I was mentored by my brother who is a film graduate and learned my way around both production and post production sound. In 2014 I had the opportunity to be part of the filmmaker education program of Asian Film Academy held in Busan, South Korea. I have been working mostly in the local film industry for 7 years, capturing location sound, mixing in surround sound format and composing music for independently produced, full length feature films and short films. I have done the same for a couple of TV advertisements and several web ads. I work well with teams or by myself. I take pride in the work I do and will take steps to not compromise the quality of my output.
I would say some of the highlights of my location sound career include the period films Heneral Luna (2015) and Goyo: The Boy General (2018). For audio post that would be Ang Kwento Nating Dalawa (2015), and for film scoring it would be Tandem (2015).
Apart from mixing audio for film or recording location sound, I spend time producing my own music, flipping my skateboard, and moon walking underwater.
