who am i?
I am a media, sales and marketing practitioner with 11 years of experience in Broadcasting and 7 years experience in sales, marketing and entrepreneurship.
My 11 years of experience in Broadcast Media began in ABS-CBN Broadcasting corporation in 1997. I was a Broadcast journalist for all News Platforms of the organization for 7 years. I was also the Main News Anchor of People's Television Network's only English Newscast "Newslife" for 4 years.
Besides being and anchor at PTV, I also headed the Sales and Marketing department of the People's Television Network in 2013 and spearheaded the re-branding efforts of the network by bringing back sports and helped in creating new programs in line with the company's vision of being the Nation's mouthpiece. As a first for the government channel, he spearheaded the partnership with Korean counterparts to air Koreanovelas, a popular genre, on the network.
I also completed my MBA at the Asian Institute of Management which broadened my horizon in business. I have honed my skills in sales, marketing and leadership through building start-ups, building networks as well as partnering with existing companies to enhance their sales and marketing in the digital arena.
How and why did I get into this?
FUNNY THING IS THAT I JUST ACCIDENTALLY STUMBLED UPON A VERY INTERESTING PHOTO (TINYPLANETS AS THEY ARE CALLED) ON INSTAGRAM AND I WAS CURIOUS HOW THEY WERE ABLE TO PRODUCE SUCH A PHOTO. BUT I WAS A BIT DISAPPOINTED CAUSE I FOUND THAT THE CAMERAS WERE EXPENSIVE.
BUT I MADE SOME RESEARCH AND AGAIN I STUMBLED UPON A VIDEO ON YOUTUBE THAT REVIEWED A RELATIVELY LOW PRICED CAMERA CALLED THE MISPHERE, A 360 CAMERA PRODUCED BY A LITTLE KNOWN CHINESE COMPANY CALLED XIAOMI. I WAS SURPRISED THAT THE REVIEW THIS GUY MADE WAS SO GOOD, HIS VIDEO CONVINCED ME TO PURCHASE THE CAMERA AND GIVE IT A SHOT.
AFTER THAT, I HAVE BEEN HOOKED AND JUST LOVE THIS NEW TECHNOLOGY AND AM LEARNING SO MUCH FROM OTHER PROFESSIONALS WHO POST THEIR REVIEWS AND TUTORIALS.
NOW I AM HOPING ONE DAY I CAN ALSO GIVE BACK TO THIS GROWING COMMUNITY AND TO THOSE WHO ARE JUST BEGINNING TO SEE THE POTENTIAL IN THIS FIELD OF PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOGRAPHY.
