WHAT KEEPS YOU BUSY?

I work in the tech in­dus­try, most re­cently help­ing Uber launch and grow its busi­ness here in the Philip­pines. When I’m not work­ing, I try to travel as much as I can or learn some­thing new—whether it’s a new lan­guage, or skills that will help me at work. Travel and ed­u­ca­tion are two things I’m re­ally pas­sion­ate about.

In the morn­ing, I cleanse my face with Sim­ple Mi­cel­lar Wa­ter, a re­cent dis­cov­ery that’s made a quite a dif­fer­ence on my skin. Then I al­ter­nate be­tween Kiehl’s Daily Re­viv­ing Con­cen­trate or Klairs Vi­ta­min C Serum. Fi­nally, I fin­ish off with Su­per­goop sun­screen, Ev­ery­day Sun­screen for all over, and Clin­ique Su­perde­fense Eye Cream for the eye area. I use Estée Lauder Ad­vanced Night Mi­cro Cleans­ing Balm, which re­moves ev­ery trace of dirt and makeup. I don’t al­ways use a treat­ment, but when I do it’s either the Gly­colic Night Serum by Drunk Ele­phant or La Roche-Posay Ef­faclar Duo. I mois­tur­ize with Clin­ique Dra­mat­i­cally Dif­fer­ent

AT NIGHT?

Meet­ing new peo­ple of­ten inspires me. I’m lucky to be ex­posed to a lot of smart, for­ward-think­ing peo­ple be­cause of the in­dus­try I’m in. At Uber, I worked with some of the most bril­liant minds here and around the world. It was an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence that forced me to push my­self ev­ery day. Right now, my big­gest fo­cus is work, so that’s where most of my challenges are. I turned 30 re­cently, so it’s all about nav­i­gat­ing my ca­reer and per­sonal life and try­ing to find that ever-elu­sive bal­ance.

THE BIG­GEST LES­SON WORK HAS TAUGHT YOU?

There’s a say­ing that if you’re the smartest per­son in the room, you’re in the wrong room. An­other way of say­ing this is that it’s al­ways good to be a lit­tle bit un­com­fort­able. If you aren’t, you’re not push­ing your­self hard enough.

WHAT IM­PRES­SION DO YOU HOPE TO LEAVE THROUGH YOUR PER­SONAL LOOK?

Over­all, I’d like to give the im­pres­sion that I’m put to­gether. I like to think about my look as what­ever al­lows me to bring my best self to the ta­ble.

WHAT OTHER DREAMS ARE YOU IN THE PROCESS OF FUL­FILL­ING?
