I remember watching the LIFESTYLE NETWORK even before I started working for ABS-CBN.
I enjoyed its shows and thought it was a brilliant idea for a cable network to target the Filipino woman, who, back then, I believe was an underserved market.
This was the channel preceding METRO CHANNEL. Who would’ve thought the channel I was once so fond of would one day be assigned to me? Maybe I manifested it in one way or another.

What brought you to this career path?
While majoring in Broadcast Communication in the College of Mass Communication in UP Diliman, I knew I would one day work for ABS-CBN. Why?
Because it was the best and biggest Broadcast Network back then and as a student, you always dream of working for the best, right?
My career in media started with strategizing promos for ABS-CBN talents and platforms. After a few years, our COO, Cory Vidanes, asked me to join TV Production. I started producing shows one after the other until I eventually became head of Studio 23’s local production department. Soon after that, I was assigned to launch a new cable channel – Jeepney TV. After two years into managing the channel, I transferred to the Lifestyle Network and eventually got promoted as Channel Head of Metro Channel.
