As a child, I really wanted to become an architect.

At school I managed to excel in most subjects but no matter how hard I tried, I somehow perfected the art of being just average at Maths. It made me think it’s probably not such a brilliant idea to throw myself into a career that revolved around it.  From a young age I've always had a passion for beautiful spaces and intricate details so, I figured, maybe taking up interior design wouldn’t be such a bad alternativewhich turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made as I am now one of those lucky people who wake up in the morning to work on, live, and breathe a job they absolutely love!

After my degree from the Ateneo de Manila University, I immediately went on to once again being a student at the Philippine School of Interior Design where two and a half wonderful years of sleepless nights and inordinate amounts of coffee earned me a summa cum laude and ample battle gear to go out into the world of design.

I made fortuitous connections down the road and, in addition to my interior design practice, I managed to juggle several careers of being a magazine editor for The Philippine Tatler, a TV presenter for a home makeover show and host for corporate events, and once in a while getting hired for a touch of modelling here and there.

As fate would have it, I had to leave those three careers behind to follow my heart. I moved to the UK where after two years of my hands collecting cuts, burns and battle scars, I completed a degree in Furniture Making at The Sir John Cass School of Art, Media and Design.  I now reside in London designing and buying home furnishings for online retailer, happily surrounded by fabric, furniture, and a glorious view of the Thames every day.
