My self-summary
I am the third child of five from filipino parents, currently living and working as a musician in the San Francisco Bay Area. I have lived in Oceanside CA, Yuma AZ, Camp LeJeune NC, Boston MA and prefer the SF Bay Area to all other locations. OK, maybe I would like to live in NYC or Paris...
