About the author
I live in Manila, Philippines and am a journalist by training. I fell in love with the craft when I was 13 years old, and went back to it full time during my sophomore year in college.
After having worked in mainstream broadcast journalism over a period of 31 years, I now run a communications consulting firm with three other partners. But my passion for journalism is undiminished.
At Midfield began in July 2007 in the Critique section of The Philippine Chronicle. With The Chronicle now off the streets, I’ve decided to continue the column here, hoping to continue contributing, in whatever way to a reasoned public understanding of the passing scene in our beloved Philippines.
Am also now a regular contributing blogger at FilipinoVoices.com and Managing Editor of the Philippines’ first on line community paper, Scout Area OnLine.
I would be remiss in my commitment to delivering the truth if I failed to mention that I have two wonderful kids, Felice and Luis, who give focus, and meaning, to this journey.
Tutored by my daughter, I now also post here selected materials from my YouTube channel.
