Personal Life

I'd be a hypocrite if I didn't practice what I preached right? So my work life balance is, indeed, absolutely important to the success of my personal and professional lifestyle. So, here's a little more about the fun and creative side of myself!

The Philippines

The Philippines is where I was born, but I was adopted and raised in the United States by an American Military Family. While English is my native language, and the United States is my home, I still love to study  and learn about my homeland. 

The Philippines is an archipelago, or string of over 7,100 islands, in southeastern Asia between the South China Sea and the Pacific Ocean. The two largest islands, Luzon and Mindanao, make up for two-thirds of the total land area. Only about one third of the islands are inhabited.

Fil-Am is short for Filipino-American, either an individual born in the Philippines and living in America, or born to a full-blooded Filipino parent and an American parent.



Get to know me on a personal level

Video Games

I've loved video games from the time I was a pre-teen back in the 80s. Once I got my hands on a Commerdore 64, the world was at my fingertips! Some of my favorite games include: Mass Effect, Fallout, Dragon Age, and World of Warcraft.

Refurbishing & Style

Travel & Outdoors

I don't know whether being a military brat turned wife brought the love for travel out in me or if I always had an immense love for world discoveries. Whatever the case may be, I love traveling and glamping the outdoors! Some of my favorite places include: Hawaii, Japan, West Virginia, and North Carolina.

One of my creative hobbies is refurbishing, reusing, and upcycling old or out-dated items and creating something bold and trendy. There is a simply joy in repainting and redesigning. One of my favorite projects was a team effort with my husband (engineer) and myself where we refurbished a 1970s upright piano to a Gothic Masterpiece!

S.T.E.A.M & Cosplay

Discovering new innovations in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Makers is such a thrill! I love tinkering, creating, and learning how things are made. I'm also a huge Cosplay fanatic and in fact, one of my favorite projects my husband and I did together was a 3D printed, painted, and engineered armor set of the T60 Power Armor from Fallout76. This project landed me a spot at the Tampa Bay Comic Con and in Maker magazine.

Fallout T60 Power Armor Cosplay

This 3D printed cosplay project was to create a full T60 Armor Set from the video game, Fallout76.  The armor was printed in pieces by Mantis, painted by Robert VanHaus, then my husband, CJ and I, segmented the pieces, shaped, molded, and engineered the complete set. View the full gallery here!
