My self-summary
Filipino-American, Bay Area born, raised with strong values and some free thinking. I would say life's challenge is about achieving and maintaining balance (too much is not good and too little is not enough). I grew up appreciating the simple things and making the best out of every situation. Most of my energy is spent finding humor in things and keeping every moment drama free. Through the years and from experiences, I've learned the true meaning of patience . . . stopping and smelling the roses more frequently.

As for my career, I was a design major in college, but took another path and invested 21+ years in operations management. I'm currently in the healthcare industry working with medical records (imaging and storage). And yes, I love my job.

Food is one of my passions, I love cooking at home or being out finding new spots to dine at. I would seriously drive within a 50 mile radius just to enjoy something new and flavorful. Roadtrip anyone?

To help unwind, I like to escape to the outdoors to fish, camp, mountain bike, or hike. My cardio activities involve a gym workout, some jogging, or some long walks. I've always been involved with competitive sports since an early age. When it comes to my teams, I follow them religiously. Sports will always be part of my life.

Music is another passion of mine. Thanks to my parents and older cousins, I grew up surrounded with instruments and songs playing on a constant rotation. I still frequent music venues and festivals on the regular. Music is best experienced LIVE and with great company.
What I’m doing with my life
1. Enjoying life with some refinement
2. Owning the daily grind . . . "work hard to play harder"
3. Remodeling my house and garden at a realistic pace
4. Researching my future pet . . . a Shiba Inu puppy
