He was studying to be a seaman at the Technological Institute of the Philippines in Quiapo, Manila, when the skimpy bikini contests beckoned. Born and raised in Quezon Province, he was dreaming big in the metro as it came to him that the only way to fare is to bare. He first joined Starmall’s Star Model Quest 2004. He lost. He next auditioned for the TV Idols search on Channel 2’s noontime show, which contest was won by AJ Dee. Although he got accepted on the TV Idols show, he backed out at the last minute. He then buffed up and did the rounds of bikini events: Sta. Lucia East Mall’s Mr. and Ms. Sexy Body 2005 [top 6], Mr. Globe Philippines 2005 [winner], Face of Bassilica [2nd RU] and Man of the Year International 2005 [1st RU to Joseph Kidwell]. He is now with Provoq Men, a group of guys who have peculiar fun disrobing for the cameras.
