I completed my degree at Monash University’s Theatre, Performance, and Music Program and received the department’s best thesis for my ethnographic research on flow and performances in the Sinulog Festival of Cebu, the Philippines. I have taught and undertaken research in the humanities, theatre, and cultural studies in the Philippines and Australia. Currently, I am involved in various projects here in Australia. These include development of inter-/transcultural community theatre within Culturally and Linguistically Diverse and Refugee Communities in Australia, Cultural and Artistic Work with Filipino Migrant Communities, and Academic and Applied Research in the Filipino Diaspora in Australia. I am also a member of a newly-organised collective, Advance League of Peoples’ Artists Inc. that will use art and progressive culture in community development. I also write Filipino and English prose, poetry, and play.
