I currently lead the design team at Kumu ↗, a Filipino-made live-streaming app funded by General Atlantic, SIG, and Openspace Ventures.
I'm also on ADPList ↗ where I mentor designers working at companies like Canva, Maya, Growsari, UBX, NextPay, Paymongo, LawAdvisor, Summit Media, and First Circle.
Prior to Kumu, I was at ING ↗ building a digital bank that provided unbanked Filipinos access to financial services. (ING Philippines shut down its services end of 2022.)
My design career began as part of the early design team at Kalibrr ↗ where we helped thousands of Filipinos find new jobs and start new careers.
I live in in hot and humid Manila, Philippines with my wife, April. I also love reading books. This fact alone makes me completely (un)qualified to run my own bookstore, Uncommon Books ↗ . I've also been learning to run! Connect with me on Strava ↗.
