I'm Manuel (if you can't pronounce my name, you can call me Manny). I am or was a programmer since 2006, but I decided to "retire at 34". I realized time is the most expensive commodity, but I continue to do my passion on software development once in a while. You’d usually find me in random coffee shops around the world.
I travel in different countries and stay longer in cities to immerse myself in the culture. If you ever need a helping hand in software development or your business, and you’re in an interesting destination, do let me know!
I teach part time in the University of the Philippines Open University because when I see the youth, I see hope. I wish to impart not only my knowledge but inspire the next generation who would shape our world.
I help businesses in the direction on how to tailor software systems, custom or off-the-shelf solutions, to their processes. I particularly give importance to the software processes to ensure the implementation run smoother.
I also enjoy making short videos. Sample: https://youtu.be/iMpk5rTl6FQ
I’m willing to help you or your company if you do something meaningful and I find it in line of what I value in life.
For other stuff, I'm a couchsurfer, and I travel whenever I can. I volunteer to help educate street kids in Manila. Oh, and I enjoy cooking, because eating outside is becoming expensive, and cheap foods are unhealthy; I'm currently addicted to pasta dishes!
