I started blogging in 2004 but before that I was a columnist of Tinig (Voice) web magazine. I was news editor of Yehey! for three years (2005-08), and columnist of UPI-Asia from 2007 to 2009. I’m currently the Southeast Asia editor of Global Voices and contributor to the ASEAN Beat of The Diplomat online magazine. I represented Kabataan Partylist in the 14th and 15th Congress of the Philippines. I am the chairman of Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (Bayan) Metro Manila.
