What exactly do you do?
I'm the publisher for Sunday Inquirer Magazine and [I also do] PR consultancy. My job requires me to be versatile in my work attire. Though strict business suits are not required of either jobs I do make it a point to dress appropriate to the activities of the day while still injecting my own personal style.
How did you get into this career path?
It found me. My first job in PR was based on pure belief by my boss that I had what it takes to do the job. I am a communications major so I guess I had the basic academic requirements.
Is this something you've always wanted?
Yes, because I enjoy what I do almost every day. I like dealing with different types of people and situations and getting their message/s across to their key audiences—I think that's the most important part of my job. I also love to write.
What's your daily routine like?
I wake up at 5:00am to work out (swim, bike, or run) until about 7:30 to 8:00am. I head to work or have breakfast with friends or my sisters depending on the day. [I go through] meetings and work from 11:00am to 4:30PM. When the clock turns 5 in the afternoon, I head to events, cocktails or happy hour depending on schedule until about 8:30pm. Then I head home, read, watch TV or do personal email until 11:00pm. I sleep around 12:30am most of the time.
What do you do on your spare time?
When is that? Haha! I love to travel, read, and shop in vintage stores and outdoor markets.
What do you do after work?
I read, sleep, eat and chill with friends.
What do you do on weekends?
