About Me

image_edited.jpg

Hi! I’m Angel, a culture writer, consumer researcher, and content strategist from Manila.

Rumor has it that I came out of my mother's womb with a pen and paper in hand. I would make storybooks, fashioned from stapled sheets of bond paper my mom would bring home from the office. After years of hopping from Wordpress to Weebly and shouting into every single void there was, I started freelancing during the pandemic. My first ever article was about stanning boy groups destined for disbandment. (What do you guys know about Wanna One?)

 

Since then, my work has inspired readers from local and international publications like VICE, i-D, Vox, and Teen Vogue. While I specialize mostly in features and opinion pieces, I've done the occasional review, event coverage, and profile too! My dream career assignment would be to spend a day with Harry Styles.

While I am definitely in my comfort zone with the written word, 
I am keen to discover the multitude
of ways one can tell a story.

Last 2022, I graduated with a degree in Communications Technology Management from Ateneo de Manila University. Throughout my stay, I learned the art of crafting end-to-end, consumer-centric marketing campaigns that connect us to brands we love. I recently concluded a year-long fellowship at Kontinentalist, where I witnessed the crucial role of intentional design and data in making issues easier to care about.

 

Today, I'm into a little bit of everything journalism-adjacent: I do trend spotting and analysis for the APAC arm of international behavioral insights agencies like Canvas8 and Crowd DNA, and dabble in futures thinking research. Maybe one day, I'll pursue further studies in behavioral science or social psychology and find ways to integrate that into a marketing career.

 

Until then, onboard me for exciting projects or reach out for mentorship or speaker opportunities!
