I was born in the Philippines and raised in Southern California, then moved to New York for college and I’ve never looked back. I actually never intended to be an event planner, this career kind of just evolved from scratch but it brings all of my talents and interests to one place: working directly with clients, challenging work, sales, and fun! I now know that I absolutely love it even though working on events is a tough job with long hours and some really hard days. When you work 12-14 hours a day for 6 days a week, for years, it can be hard to date and enjoy life to the fullest. But through the difficulty of this job, I’ve learned some of the most valuable life and career lessons.
Within the last year and a half, I became engaged to and married the love of my life. We’ve raised our pet mini-schnauzer from a puppy to the rambunctious guy he is today. All this time, I’ve yearned to get back to my first passion: writing. I always knew that putting words down in print has been one of the best outlets for me by being a form of therapy, venting, problem-solving and even spurring my imagination. I started Love and Other Plans to balance my love for writing and my foreseeable career – bringing my client’s dreams to life.
