Skills & Services

Let me help you tell your story.


I write articles for a number of magazines and websites, but I can also write press releases, product and service descriptions, speeches, company profiles, instruction manuals, essays, short stories, and longer works of fiction and nonfiction.


I proofread and/or copy edit content, usually articles or manuscripts, but I can also do content editing and beta reading to help you improve the elements of your story as well as your delivery of it. Rates for copy editing and proofreading are per word, while plot doctoring and editorial consulting rates are negotiated per project or paid by the hour.


I currently am the book blogger behind, where I post book reviews, author interviews, videos, and more.

Workshops & Community

Helping fellow writers and editors improve their craft is something I just love to do, whether it’s in a classroom setting, a public venue, or one-on-one. I can devise workshops or seminars according to your needs, and I’m also open to coaching sessions and public speaking opportunities. I’m currently the community manager of Romance Writers of the Philippines.

About Me

Let me tell you about myself.
Shaping stories is my passion.

I'm a writer and editor of awesome, reader-friendly content. The bulk of my work involves writing articles, planning and editing online content, and copy editing manuscripts, but I've also done some workshops and magazine editing. I'm happy to do anything related to communications, but shaping stories (my own or other people's) is my passion. Download my most recent resume here or find me on LinkedIn.

My past experience includes working as an editor for lifestyle websites, book editing for a couple of publishing companies, writing for national magazines and newspapers, and more.

When I'm not writing for pay, I'm writing for myself—I've got a couple of novels in progress. I also volunteer for Romance Writers of the Philippines. Two friends and I started a book blog at in January 2015, but as of March 2016, I've been flying solo on that venture.

I'm happily married with dog, and I like to play the beach bum whenever I can manage it—usually at Hale Manna, a beautiful beachside B&B run by my family.
