About Me

Pax et bonum! “Peace and all good!” as St. Francis used to say. This blog is a collection of photos and random thoughts chronicling my journey of learning to imitate St. Francis’s way of imitating Christ.

Originally from the Philippines, I grew up in Canada and New Jersey before settling in New York City, where I graduated from the Cooper Union School of Art. After college, I spent a few years working in store design and visual merchandising for several luxury brands. It took me 29 years to finally answer “Yes” to discern a call to religious life. I feel that our paths in life always lead us to where we are supposed to be, no matter how circuitous or out of the way it may seem.

I recently professed vows as a Friar Minor (the Franciscans) and will be spending the next few years in continued discernment with the Franciscan Friars of Holy Name Province.
