She has been writing and producing professionally since 2009 and her work has appeared on TV, print, radio, and online.

Her first "real" job was in TV production, where she learned to edit 30-second plugs and create monthly media strategies for a local cable channel. In 2011, she went freelance and became a pioneer writer and segment producer for two lifestyle and fashion-themed shows, Etcetera and ETC HQ. During this stint she also wrote and produced content for various TV commercials, magazines, radio ads, and events.

She is currently completing her Master's Thesis for Graduate Film Studies at UP Diliman. She aims to eventually venture into writing for cinema. In the meantime, she is fully embracing this opportunity to learn a new way of telling stories.
