I am a 20 year old originally from Manila, Philippines. I currently live in Sydney, Australia.
I have been blogging since high school but I’m best known as a national radio reporter.
I previously wrote for Hijacked Australia– a leading student life magazine syndicated nationally by oOh! media. After, I joined as a producer for 2SER 107.3FM community radio in Sydney. I originally produced for the Friday morning magazine program The Daily. Soon thereafter, I expanded into reporting with the On The Money financial program as well as becoming part of a rotating panel of newscasters. I finished up in April 2018. In July, I will be joining Bloomberg News in Sydney – a project I’m infinitely excited about!
I also study a double degree in Economics and Journalism at Macquarie University, Sydney. I also have additional certifications in data journalism.
My favourite interests are the future of journalism as well as anything international. From geopolitical changes to market movements, I’m always interested in what is happening outside my window. I’ve written on headline making situations like Australia’s same sex marriage campaign and less-headline making situations like the insurgency in Marawi, Philippines. Most of all, I’m fascinated by the how and why in a story – and what happens next. I am a fervent believer that the whole story is always better than the instant grab.
In my spare time, you’ll find me listening to Matchbox Twenty, watching my LA Kings play (NHL), sipping lemon iced tea (the only valid flavour of iced tea) or out with family and friends enjoying life. Get in touch with me through Twitter or my contact page – and let’s start a conversation. After all, every journalist needs their sources as much as every source needs a journalist.
