I started playing chess seriously at the age of 15 years. I am a rated chess player before, when I was young. Now, I'm playing it just for fun. I am a Licensed Chemical Engineer. I was very active in organizing Chess Clubs and Chess Tournaments in our Barangay (Village) before. I was even elected as Barangay Councilor (Village Official) for 2 terms because of my involvement in Community and Sports Development, most particularly in Chess. I worked previously with Pepsi-Cola -Cebu Plant, Philippines for 25 years as QA Manager. After Pepsi, I started working abroad at the age of 50. First in Saudi Arabia, then in Qatar. I'm working now in Madagascar, Africa, as QC Engineer (E&I) with Kentz Ambatovy Power Plant Project. Aside from chess, I do swimming, PRT, taekwondo, karatedo and scrabble playing.
