Before joining Octomedia (Inside Retail), I was with The Peninsula English Daily Newspaper in Qatar and The Philippine Daily Inquirer covering breaking and local news. I was also a part-time reporter for ABS-CBN Europe and was based in Paris, France. I’m currently a business journalist for Octomedia’s Inside Retail and Inside Retail NZ news sites. I studied journalism at the University of San Jose-Recoletos and took a course at the Sorbonne University in Paris on Langue et Civilisation Francaise.
