Hello! I am a papercut artist in a tiny home studio in Northern Chicago. I draw and cut all my designs by hand using an x-acto knife (and a lot of blade replacements, lol). I also paint with watercolors and acrylics, and plan to marry all my mediums together (universe, tell me how).

I illustrate with pencil and ink, and most of my past works (a regular comic strip and a substantial number of political cartoons, some of which have slightly gotten me into trouble in the past) have appeared in The Manila Collegian โ€“ the official student publication of UP Manila โ€“ my alma mater.

As a DJ for 107.1FM in Chicago, I am fortunate to share great local and international music to an awesome audience every Saturday 9pm CST and check out new releases from cool artists.

At the beginning of 2017, I also started handling the CHIRP online newsletter and it gave me so much joy discovering local events, organizations, and other proudly Chicagoan stuff to share with our music-lovinโ€™ subscribers.
