Five Words About Me:
Guerrilla attitude, seeks refined results
One Surprising Skill:
Can belch on cue
My family moved to Williamson, WV in 1978. I am a first generation Filipino-American, who was a fan of comic books and science fiction, loved to write, and filmed movies with my Dad’s video camera. Phillips Academy in Andover Ma. provided me with a Prep School education. I received my BA in English at Centre College, which included a semester abroad in London, England. I earned my JD at the Golden Gate University School of Law in San Francisco CA. I spent 13 more years in California before returning to West Virginia to start the practice of law in my hometown.
Since returning to Williamson, I’ve spent two years creating outlets. The results have been a monthly open mic, night, an annual pop culture convention, WillCon, that has reached 1400 attendees, a pop up art gallery, a shadow cast of Rocky Horror Picture Show, and presenting Miki Sawada’s Gather Hear Tour.
