Writer, Communications Manager, Arts Administrator, Music Artist
I am a BA Communication Arts Writing Major student from the University of the Philippines Los Baños. As such, I am fluent in Filipino (Tagalog) and English. I am well-trained in the field of research, arts management, speech communication, theater, comparative literature, creative writing, and technical writing.
With my experience as a communication arts student, as an odesk contractor, and as a person who is always eager to learn, I became skilled in various computer programs such as MS Office; photo-editing and graphic design softwares like Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop; and music-editing software like Finale and Adobe Audition. I am also confident in handling web-based programs or online tools. Learning how to utilize new apps and systems is easy for me and I can manage multiple systems/platforms and other internet tools. I regard the knowledge and skills in these as an advantage to the innovation and improvement of today's work.
My set of knowledge and skills do not stop there because I am also a singer-musician who can compose, transcribe, and arrange music/songs in different genres. I have done music/song compositions, transcriptions, and arrangements for concerts, theater productions, music groups/bands, and my personal use. I sing or play mostly classical and pop music, but I am flexible with the other genres because of my wide range of musical influence. I also do guitar lessons/workshops.
I can play the classical guitar and steel-stringed guitar in an advanced level; the piano/keyboard, electric bass, and ukelele in an intermediate level. I am the former principal guitarist/guitar section head of Harmonya: The String Ensemble of UPLB that performs in various prominent events here in the Philippines. Nowadays, I usually perform in recitals, corporate events, and other gigs.
With all of my knowledge, skills, and experiences mentioned above, I am very enthusiastic in seeking opportunities where I can develop myself while inspiring and helping other people.
