I was born and raised in Manila until I was 16 when my family moved to California. I went to school at UC Berkeley for undergrad and then the University of Amsterdam for graduate school. For my master's thesis, I did my field research in the northern province of Cebu. This is when I got to experience all the beautiful offerings of the island city. I liked the place so much that I bought a small condo in the Lahug neighborhood of Cebu City. This is pretty much my residence whenever I am in the Philippines.
I now live in the Sunset Junction district of Los Angeles but still reside seasonally in the San Francisco Bay Area, Orange County, Las Vegas and Cebu.
