My professional career has spanned for more than 10 years and has taken me across the globe. I worked in the Philippines, United Arab Emirates, and finally settled in Canada. I’ve been a web developer,  digital designer, QA Analyst, and a freelancer. I’ve worked in Real Estate, Events, Advertising Agencies, and Software Testing. It’s been a long ride and I can’t wait for the next adventure.
