Born on the banks of the Sta. Isabel river in the swamplands of central Malolos, I was raised by a group of traveling gypsies who taught me to fend for myself by pick pocketing and scamming tourists on the outskirts of Bulacan.
I spent the first twenty years of my life running from the police and experimenting with hard drugs. Sleeping in abandoned trailer parks, and stealing packed lunches from small children to survive, I was able to elude the authorities for quite some time. And, if I hadn’t consumed that entire gallon of homemade moonshine and passed out naked in the middle of NLEX near Exit 32, I’d probably still be running.
As it happens, getting arrested that day was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. After being charged with twelve different misdemeanors, I was sentenced to 36 months community service. My time there was not pleasant, and I will not go into the details here. I spent most of my time in the institution reading computer manuals and teaching myself every programming language I could find a book for. Yeah, it was difficult only having access to a computer for one hour every week, but I managed to learn the entire syntax of nine different programming languages during my 36 month sentence.
After I was released from the institution, I moved north, forged some documents (I’m not proud of this, but it had to be done), and got myself accepted to a computer university in Bulacan. There, I excelled as a computer science student, and graduated near the top of my class. I was also introduced to 3D modeling by a friend, and it magically sparked my interest in the arts.
These days, I spend most of my time in my Home, tucked away in a dimly lit dungeon, making video games for Disney Interactive Studios. I also continue to create strange and unique 3D renderings and digital artwork in my spare time.
