B.S. Molecular and Cellular Biology, Minor: Asian American Studies, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, 2016.

In 2018, I work for a high-throughput production team at a non-profit ministry organization, resourcing thousands of college students with tools to share their spiritual lives with their friends.

In 2017, I worked at a start-up department for a non-profit ministry organization, where I innovated new ways to form genuine, deep connections with people online.

In 2016, I was a research assistant at the University of California, where I worked with microbiology and bioinformatics tools to understand the human virome.

I’m a brother (the eldest of 4 from Orange County). A Filipino.

I follow Jesus, joyfully, begrudgingly, or helplessly to where He calls.

& my thoughts on this blog are solely my own, not my employer’s.

This blog is space for me to think and create. I’ve been in and around digital spaces for so much of my life. It’s how I’ve learned to socialize, how I’ve navigated through the world, and where I want to continue to build lasting relationships. I’m wired for constellations; my brain works so very big picture that I can’t help but connect what I see. I’ll write those out here, for myself. You’ll find bioinformatics and microbiology, theology, ethnic studies, digital humanities, and maybe personal snapshots woven together.

I also don’t live in moments; I connect, build, and record. I often only realize the gravity of my situation when I look back. I want this space to be a nebulaboth a remnant of what I was and a place that builds what I will be. Thank you for being a part of it; to God be the glory.
