Rupert studied at UP Los Baños and UP Diliman. He began his career in the broadcast industry at the Philippines' first 24-hour news channel Sarimanok News Network, now ANC, or the ABS-CBN News Channel. In 2000 he left what could have been lucrative employment to work for an NGO in Eastern Samar.

His love for journalism persisted and he found himself back at ABS-CBN in 2005 as a Futures Desk Specialist and Field Producer. He left the company as Head of Field Operations for the News Division.

A hybrid of newsgathering, production, engineering, and eventually multimedia operations, the field eventually became his office. Telling stories using all available media is his passion.

Rupert's journey in the industry has also made him an accidental endorser of a wireless landline.
