Let's create intentional stories for your brand
It hasn't been an easy 50, but I am just grateful for good health, family, and friends.
I am thankful for projects that have been coming in, and for clients, who have been so cooperative and considerate. Grateful for all the Interns who have joined us and have contributed to all the creativity in our pages and made our lives easier. We hope that they have learned a thing or two from us.
Moving forward, I choose to be healthier and love myself more, I will try to worry less, promote creativity, promote genuine content that is intentional, and create projects and opportunities that can help more people and brands too.
They are my inspirations, they have been there through the bad times and the good. They have made me proud, and sometimes they have also broken my heart, but they will always be part of me and who I am.
She drives me crazy, a Scorpio like me, but very different in many many ways. We have basically grown old together, like an old couple. She has her own world, I have mine too. She tries to be everything to everybody but I try to remind her that she can also do as much. She has 8 cats who drive everyone in the house crazy, 2 turtles, and her plants. She always works or tries to work even if its time for relaxation. Sometimes hard-headed but has her heart in the right place.
Been in the line of Events Planning & Management for the longest time until of course the Pandemic came, and the world came to a halt. Moving forward in the #newnormal, I would love to take on new projects that will let me be able to share those opportunities with more people who need work.
I love working from home. They used to just call it FREELANCE work before, and people back then thought it was simply lazing around. But I can say that it has been the way I have earned for my family and supported their needs. These days working from home is more understood by more people and is given more credit and credibility.
Have worked with the largest brands that range from Sports & Wellness, Food & Beverage, Entertainment, & Hospitality. Marketing, is basically the same whatever brand or category it may belong. What matters is how you are able to sell it to the right market, and what you do to communicate the story and make it part of their journey.
Actually started my career working as a PR Assistant in an Advertising & PR Agency called MediaMix with Edith Sola as my boss and mentor. Worked with the legendary Tammy Tomista, of the Manila Midtown Hotel, and also trained under Cosette Romero, (RIP) Fleishman Hillard, from then PACT with George Balagtas; Collaborated for some PR projects of Liza Guerrero Nakpil as well as Chris Cahilig. My best PR influence of course would be from Sol Vanzi nonetheless.
I scanned the newspapers for the day for all the news releases that have come out, clipping them and putting them together in a report. I would be the one sending out the invites to the media in person, making sure they are attending our events, and are well taken care of.
I was an intern too, and now I am paying it forward by training students from the Philippines' top Universities and colleges who need internships as part of their academic requirements. This program under Purple Ink PH has been ongoing for more than 15 years already. Currently attracting even postgraduate students and other individuals who want to learn new skills they can use and improve their lives.
It feels great to be able to gather people around their tables, together as they share food that has been specially prepared for their special occasions or even simply a family weekend, or an office get-together. Cooking is in my blood. My dad is of a great cook, my aunt, Sol Vanzi, a gourmet cook and the person with who I consult all about my cooking and has passed on to me some of her tools, and great wisdom. I guess it would be a shame if I had not discovered the joy of cooking.
It gives me peace and satisfaction that I am able to do this for other people and my family as well. Purple Palayok is here to stay, and we have come up with an updated menu for the holiday season for everyone to enjoy!
Join me on my journey!
