DOWNLOAD CV




A work-in-progress Art Director,  with a strong background in illustration and design. With a utility belt of skills and thirst for knowledge, I am ready to learn how to be more like Batman and less of a Handy Manny. 

Graduating in 2016 from Temasek Polytechnic’s School of Design, I began freelancing as an illustrator and designer for multiple projects where I learnt more about a variety of businesses from travel to craft beers. During my National Service, I was put in the SCDF’s Multimedia Crew, where I got to improve my grasp on production, photography, motion design and storyboarding for 2 years. 

After my service in late 2018, I started my first gig at Edelman Singapore, as a Junior Art Director. Together with my team, we boosted Edelman’s creative offerings to accounts like Traffic Police, Arla, HP, Nissan, National Arts Council and Harley Davidson.
I want to tell stories and bring the best out myself and the world I live in. New to the game, pumped and fresh with ideas, I’m ready to take on whatever creative obstacles may come. *Queue Eye of the Tiger* 

*Insert fun fact part of bio here to be more relatable*
I was in a wind band for 5+ years but I’m deaf in my left ear. Favourite movie is a tie between Rocky Horror Picture Show and Clue (1985).  Favourite food is everything Filipino.
