2017 Goals

They say if you write it down, you are one step closer to achieving it. I don’t know how I can travel to the places I’ve listed below. I’ve done a rough itinerary and the airfare does not come cheap. By some miracle, it can be achieved. Maybe I should start playing the lottery. Self…

Wonderful World of Acting

Growing up, people usually have a path laid out for them: starting with elementary school, high school, college, to finding a job related to your undergraduate degree. And I did just that. However, after a year of working for a foreign embassy, I decided that the world is much more than what I see in…

Theater: Palasyo ni Valentin

Post-participation in Virgin Labfest, I got a little bit more confident to pursue auditions. I tried for Dalanghita’s Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading Lady musical, Dulaang UP’s Haring Lear to name a few. I was lucky to be cast in DLSU CSB’s Palasyo ni Valentin under the direction of the acclaimed Nonon Padilla. Written by the…

Rehearsal to Performance Techniques 2015

Summer of 2015 saw me going back to the Cultural Center of the Philippines for another round of Summer Theater Adventure with it’s resident theater company, Tanghalang Pilipino. It was a tough decision to make considering that the 6pm-10pm Tuesday to Saturday schedule for Rehearsals to Performance Technique class with Sir Dennis Marasigan will be…

Soundcloud: Game

February 2015. Not sure how I was able to compose this in 10 minutes – if you don’t count the time I hummed the song while I was in the shower. This was dedicated to the man who ruined my dynamics. To all who have met The Playboy, take him out of your life before you…
