Allen currently works as a creative director for a magazine under an Emmy-winning, worldwide media company based in Los Angeles. He is a graduate of Architecture but his love for print and digital media led him to become a graphic artist for diverse design companies. If he wants it, he does everything to get it. He loves anything local and he loves to travel. He spends all of his money on magazines and books, and considers potato as the only vegetable he would eat.

FRENIEL AUSTRIA

Content Editor

A pioneer of audit analytics in the biggest Philippine conglomerate, Freniel believes in the value and wisdom in data. He refers to it as numerical imagination, seeing through bits of data and discovering the underlying stories they tell. While his career is based on analyzing people by data and numbers, he doesn’t fit into any box of the continuum. He is ambivert—gregarious enough for the day-to-day conventions of social commerce but introspective when his mind is immersed elsewhere. His love of numbers is on the same scale with his passion for the arts, reaching a Steinhaus–Moser notation.

ELLAINE LAURETA

Content Editor

    Ellaine is a Registered Nurse by profession, a journalist by passion, and an advocate for holistic health and youth empowerment. This young leader and philanthropist is on a mission to explore the world and leave a positive impact wherever the Creator of the universe leads her. She is currently living her best life in New York and encourages others to do the same through her inspirational, faith-based blog. When she’s not saving lives, you can find her spending quality time with her family, volunteering in her community, capturing life’s precious moments with a camera, creating content straight from the heart, and low-key obsessing over postcards.

    Brent is a university instructor, who has his sights set on pursuing a master’s degree in Pharmacy. He believes that every person is full of potential and needs sparks of creativity. He ignites his own creativity and imagination by spending time in the great outdoors. Literary writing, especially English poetry, piques his interest. He is an easy-going guy who considers the turtle as his spirit animal. After finishing his academic duties, you would find this Grey’s Anatomy junkie binge watching the series while guzzling yogurt.

    Bek, as her children at work call her, is a Senior Educator at an Early Learning Centre. She has a degree in Biology. She secretly misses science-related studies and research but her knack for children's literature and literacy keeps her dedicated to the formative years of children in the land down under. Yes, she has tried kangaroo and crocodile meat but has yet to cuddle a koala. She is currently finding her way back into her first loves—faith, music and writing.
