Faculty Profile

“I started biking when I was 7 years old and spent many summers riding with my cousins in the remote town of Magallanes, Sorsogon; and with my dad and friends in Cebu when there were trees and more bikes than cars… Biking gives me freedom to glide in the air, see the faces of the people, and smell my city. It is also a great equalizer in a livable city – regardless of our economics, education, religion, political views and gender, we are all the same on the road, with the same rights and responsibilities to work for a sustainable and livable city. When not on my bike, I teach Psychology and mentor students at U.P.; steward a trio of permaculture-inspired hotels; get my hands dirty at a permaculture farm called KPAF (Katunggan Permaculture Adventure Farm); write; blog; kayak; think freely; learn the teachings of the Buddha; do comedy and sleep. I love to sleep…”
