I am an independent internet consultant and worked on designing and developing corporate websites for companies such as Trans-Phil Builders Corporation, Delicatesse Food Corporation and PU Rigid Insulation Contractor Inc. and other similar sites that I cannot publicly disclose. I designed and developed these sites from the ground up and continue to maintain them. I use the following applications, Dreamweaver, Fireworks and Photoshop to design and develop websites. I also have training and experience with the use of Microsoft Office applications running on Windows OS.

I used to worked for a US-based online store as an off-shore web designer, graphic artist and data entry personnel until the recession hit the US market. I am now currently working part-time for another US-based online retail clothing store updating and maintaining the store on a daily-basis, sending out tracking numbers and updating billing details. I have extensive experience in using X-Cart shopping cart application.

I recently turned to photography as people started noticing my work, started with a point-and-shoot camera, then an iPhone 4S and now I am using a Canon EOS 600D/Rebel T3i DSLR, encouraging me to pursue a career in photography. You can view my works on my website, Retrato Manila where I also attempt to write some notes to accompany the photos. I do landscape, architecture and portrait photography.

Interested parties who would like to get my services, don’t worry my professional fee is minimal or might even be for free, you may get in touch with me via the email link at the top of this page or through the contact page of my website.

    1. Yup, born and raised. I got no plans of leaving the Philippines unless there would be a job offer to take pics and write about them. Retrato Manila started with the goal of keeping my friends who are out of the country to see how Manila looks now. If you happen to have friends or people you know that misses Manila you may point them here. You may also follow my blog.
