I am a lawyer, a licensed real estate broker, a licensed real estate appraiser with extensive experience in property law, corporate governance, intellectual property law, administrative law, public communications, research management, marketing management and organizational development.  I placed 6th among the bar passers from San Sebastian College Recoletos de Manila in the 2014 bar exams, where the school itself placed 7th in the 100 or more examinees category.

Education wise, I hold a Bachelor of Laws degree from San Sebastian College Recoletos de Manila and a Master in Business Administration degree from Jose Rizal University.  I likewise hold a Bachelor of Science major in Psychology degree from San Sebastian College Recoletos de Manila.

I just recently served as a Legal Officer (Officer II) at the Office of the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS).  I provided legal insights to the Office of the Chairman on board agenda matters in the exercise of the Board of Trustees’ quasi-judicial and quasi-legislative powers and provide technical assistance to the Chairman in his preparations for the Legal Oversight Committee and Corporate Governance Committee.  Previously, I was a Faculty Member at the Technological University of the Philippines and assigned as an Intellectual Property Officer at the Innovation and Technology Support Office – Technology Licensing Office (ITSO-TLO).  I was responsible for providing legal advice to faculty and student researchers on their intellectual property rights.  Prior to this, I was assigned at the University Research and Development Services (URDS), where I was designated as a Publications Officer for nine years and was mainly responsible for providing my technical writing expertise to faculty researchers and formulating research related policies.  I originally joined TUP as the University President’s Executive Assistant where I was tasked to provide assistance to the President on technical affairs including communications and publications. As executive assistant, I authored the University President’s Strategic Plan, the TUP Position Paper on Asian Development Bank’s Confidentiality Policy, the TUP Rationalization on Tuition Fee Increase, prepared official messages and speeches and was the editor-in-chief of the various University publications.

Going far back to the history of my professional engagement, I was the Head for Training Services at the Colombo Plan Staff College for Technician Education (CPSC).  CPSC is an ISO9001:2000 certified intergovernmental training organization with 19 member countries mandated to promote the status of vocational and technology (VOCTECH) education among its member countries.  I was primarily responsible for overseeing the logistical preparations of our 35 training programs a year, where each training program require meticulous preparations equivalent to workload of two months.  I had the honour of authoring a detailed operations manual for the conduct of CPSC training programs.  I was likewise, a member of the company’s ISO9001:2000 internal quality audit team and the liaison officer of its Graduate Fellowship Programme.

My first professional engagement after college was as a Training Associate at the Corporate and Career (CORE) Consultants, Inc.  CORE Consultants is a private behavioural training organization where I was responsible for marketing its various training programs and assisted in designing and conducting training programs customized to a particular client’s needs.  I hold the distinction of being the first and so far only Training Associate to have solely authored a full blown training manual which I eventually sold to a client.

As additional information, I was formerly a contributing scriptwriter for GMA7’s “Bubble Gang”, and likewise performed as an actor for TV and movies.  I have a great sense of humour and with deep passion for filmmaking and the visual arts.  I am also the Vice President of the AMICADD Philippines, a professional organization devoted for the promotion of VOCTECH education in the Philippines.  I love working out and I am a running enthusiast.
