I am a Filipina American, born on January 5 in Northern Illinois. My father is a Philippine Ambassador (Ret) and Writer, and my mother is a former Nurse. I have 2 sisters. My family moved around when I was younger, but I mostly grew up in Northern Virginia. I am married to a United States Marine First Sergeant (Ret). We reside in Southern California and are the proud pet parents of a beautiful and sweet American Staffordshire Terrier named Sirius Black.

I am an aerospace professional with expertise in document and data control and customer support. I graduated from University of Phoenix with a Master of Business Administration and a Bachelor of Science in Communication with a concentration in Communication and Technology. I also hold an Associate of Arts in Liberal Arts and Sciences and a Certificate in Computer Information Management - Web Design from Saddleback College.

I am a lifetime member of University of Phoenix Lambda Sigma Chapter, Delta Mu Delta International Honor Society in Business. I am also a member of University of Phoenix Alumni Association and Saddleback College Alumni Network. In addition, I participate in the Zazzle Associates Program and Amazon Associates Program.

I enjoy web designing on occasion. My technique is to use clean lines and minimalist designs. I try to focus on visual appeal and user-friendliness. I had originally planned to do more freelancing. However, my full-time schedule keeps me occupied. I have kept my portfolio available for viewing.

My hobbies include movies, television, music, karaoke, digital photography, reading, social media, Renaissance faires, pirate and steampunk festivals, pop culture conventions, travel, and food.

Family is a key element in my life. They inspire me and keep me grounded.
