I received a message the other day telling me that I shouldn't show where I came from because it looks embarrassing in their opinion..I was in the past because I didn't know better, we live in a society where we compare ourselves to our friends or the person next to us not thinking about what we have in front of us. I realized that I may not have all of the material things, but I have what's more important than all of that. A loving family and a strong support system. I'm happy and proud to show where I'm from, because the Philippines and my home made me who I am.🇵🇭

Social media is amazing and at the same time it's one of the leading causes of depression in the western world. We tend to only see how everyone's living great lives but it's all filtered. We only see the good here, but not the bad and thats why I love to visit Asia once/twice a year to ground myself and learn from the locals. This is a place where your social numbers don't matter, what matters is your character and how you really are as an individual. To be human, that's what I chase for.

I told myself I won't crash any drones in 2018, in reality I'm down 5 and had to rescue my last one at a cliff in Atuh beach. Huge thanks to the lovely people here in Bali who are very kind and helped me retrieve it. #Agua @rodneyhazard @kahalalalaa

Just because you're breathing doesn't mean you're alive. Say what you feel, do what you want to do.
There's a very thin line between living and existing.

Growing up, I never really thought I'd hold a camera or even think that I'd do this for a living. If you're born and raised in the Philippines, your reality is to survive, unless you're in the middle class or upper class. My reality during that time was not to hold a camera, it was to finish school and to do something in the medical field for cultural reasons and to move up the social hierarchy class.  When I moved to California, I still followed this path to make my parents proud. I went to get my B.S for Kinesiology in San Francisco State University while taking campaigns with my art on the side. When I graduated, I had to choose one path. I chose my passion because I knew that was going to make me completely happy no matter how hard things get. This lead me to places I would have never seen in my life if I didn't risk and just chose the right path.

Being on the road with my fiancé for the past 2 months now, I realize that she's as crazy as me. From taking care of elephants, riding on motorcycles on the worst roads you can imagine, scaling death cliffs down to secluded beaches and jumping to one country to another like it's nothing. I give it to you, @kahalalalaa you have my heart and and my semi vegan ass

Chasing cliff sides in Bali. After seeing this beautiful view, I can see why the Hindu's chose this as a place of worship. Here lays the Uluwatu Temple.

Mo la po is a 46 years old Asian elephant. She was born in 1972 and was rescued from the Mae Hong Son province 7 years ago. A Karen village in northern Thailand found her very malnourished took her in to help her get her strength back. Now she is completely healthy and an expectant mother within the next 12 months. The mahout caring for Molapo is Mr. Poket who is seen laying in front of me in the picture. He has been taking care of her since she was rescued, and you can see the love they have for each other. The mahouts grow old with these elephants, and stay with them every night to bring them back to the jungle so that they can roam free and safely, then they come back during the day to rest. They do this everyday to make sure that they are safe from danger while they are out in the jungle. This year I wasn't able to join them at night, but instead me and @kahalalalaa stayed with the local Karen tribe to learn more about their culture.

About a year ago, I lost my shit. I stopped shooting as much, stopped talking to everyone and disappeared. If you're going through that my advice is for you to leave, pick a place far that you do not know the language and  learn to live once again. The monks here saved me. I'm so glad to be back in Chiang Mai and I can't wait to take care of these elephants once again.
