I was born and raised in Manila Philippines. I graduated Elementary School, High School in Manila. I attended PATTS (Aeronautics) Colloge School as a domestic flight attendant in Manila Philippines. My passion is photography, reading books! I worked for over 11 years in a bookstore as a bookseller, "Der Club Bertelsman", unfortunately the big company no longer exists since 2011. Since then it is the biginn of more interest in reading and I collect books. My hobby is archery. I live in Baden Württemberg, Germany (near the Swiss border) and works in Switzerland. My passion for photography has been around for many years and has intensified over time. I am a patient observer with a focus on adventure in work progress. I learned photography by doing (self-taught), reading photo books and simply practicing. I photograph everything from landscapes, nature, wildlife, architecture to people on the street, but lately I've been fascinated by experimental photography at home. This is work in progress.
