(b.1976, Manila, Philippines)

The focus of my work is on art as expanded practice involving residencies, performances, exhibits and archives. This includes research on ecology of art practices (artist initiatives/ collectives, art residencies,  sound practice communities).

I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Theory, College of Fine Arts, University of the Philippines. I was former Chair of the CFA Committee on Linkages, Scholarships and Grants (2023-2024) , Curator for the University of the Philippines Fine Arts Gallery (2020-2023), and Collections Manager of University of the Philippines Center for Ethnomusicology (2007-2014).  
For my independent practice, I founded and curated art project series Project Glocal (2011-2015), Composite Noises (2015-2024); and archiving/research series Sonic Manila Research (2020-2023).  

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Philippines Studies and Master of Arts in Museum Studies from the University of the Philippines, and Doctor of Philosophy in Cultural Studies from Lingnan University Hong Kong. I was a Research Fellow at the LUHK Centre for Cultural Research and Development (2020); recipient of Centennial Professorial Chair Award (2021), PhD Incentives Award (2022), One U.P. Professorial Chair Award for Art History and Curatorship (2023), Gawad Tsanselor para sa Natatanging Guro (Chancellor's Award for Most Outstanding Teacher, 2024) from the University of the Philippines.
