  • Where am I from? It’s a bit complicated:

    1. San Francisco, CA
    2. Evanston, IL
    3. Cambridge, MA
    4. Schenectady, NY
    5. Pittsburgh, PA
    6. Dumont, NJ
    7. San Mateo, CA
So which one is my hometown? I don’t think there’s a rigorous answer to that.
  • As for the other Frequently Asked Question: the last name is Filipino. Having been born in this country, I’ve not had the pleasure of visiting the ancestral land.
  • As you can tell, I enjoy creative writing, a habit I have had since childhood. I have been published in various venues on the Web and in print and am currently working on getting a (small) book-length piece which I co-authored out into the world.
