(11/07/1975 / Natonin, Mountain Province, Philippines)



I love poetry there is no doubt about it.

I was born in a poor family

but nurtured with humility,

Tendered and cared with simplicity

by parents whose hands showed me

the joy of life and all its glory

amidst great life pains along the way

of making me a man, I am today

as a lover of peace and harmony

as an advocate of nature's ecology

and a soul searching God's beauty.

I am presently residing at Tabuk, Kalinga, Philippines and presently working at the Department of Trade and Industry as a senior specialist.However, I was born at Saliok, Natonin, Mountain Province, Philippines to a poor family. I was able to finish my degree of Bachelor of Science in Commerce, major in Accounting and management at St. Mary's University, Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya, Philippines as an scholar of the National integration Study Grant Program (NISGP) sponsored by the Department of Education and National Student Loan Center, Philippines. I owed my success to my parents unending support, love and concern to my every undertaking. I also earned my Master of Public Adminstration (MPA) at Kalinga-Apayao State College.

I entered the government service since 1991 after earning my degree. I was once a clerk, college instructor, financial analyst and as a training and program specialist at the Department of Trade and Industry where I am now connected.

I may not have Sharepares's tongue

That can elicit the winds commands

But I have a heart and a sublime mind

That can go even far what is beyond

To bring the light of my magical wand

To inspire and give joy to anyone.

I have not published any book so far but i have shared some of my poems to the internet particularly to or Updates



Poets of all walks of life the world had seen
May rest their laurels to end their own being
but their spirit through their works will remain
Touching, reminding, loving and inspiring.
