I have an extensive experience in the management of cultural and creative industries—assuming various leadership roles such as being a film producer, executive director, general manager, and holding creative and managerial positions in content writing and editing for different publications. I also have several years of university teaching in the Philippines, Australia, and United Kingdom, handling modules on screen production, research methods, creative cities, cultural and creative industries, creative entrepreneurship, cultural economy and sustainable development among others. My research interests include Asian cinema, independent filmmaking, film distribution, cultural economy and the broader area of cultural and creative industries.
