Napakasayang alalahanin ang panahon ng kabataan, lalo na ang paliligo sa napakalinaw na tubig at napakalinis na ilog. Ang magkakaibigan ay tila walang kapaguran sa paghahabulan at pagtatalunan, lumilipas ang maghapon na punong puno ng tawanan at halakhakan. Sa panahon ngayon ang pangyayaring ito ay tila ba isang ala ala na lang dahil na din sa pagpapabaya natin sa ating kalikasan. Ang ating bansa ay napakayaman sa magandang kapaligiran kaya sana ito ay wag pabayaan at patuloy na alagaan, upang sa pag abot natin ng ating pangarap kasabay natin ang ganda ng ating kalikasan sa pag unlad.

He is a sign artist and he makes signages, manual t-shirt prints, billboards, plastic lightboxes, panaflex signs, murals, and cinema displays. But when new technology came in, his business slowly weakened. A few years later, he almost gave up his art business.

This was when he discovered the art style he called “Abstraction of Nature” and the light of his art career start again. He is the co-founder of the Tagaytay Artist Group and he participated in many group exhibitions and among the artists who joined, he became the top grosser.
