Life as a Lawyer
After passing the Bar in 2012, he ventured into private practice and specialized on employer-employee relations for two (2) years. He then joined the government as a Public Attorney where he gained further experience in Criminal and Labor Laws. As a Public Attorney, he was assigned as the resident Drugs Court lawyer of RTC 61 in Baguio City. For his lawyering profession, he is now focused on some litigation work and on delivering Legal Wellness Lectures.
Leaving government service
He loved his job as a Public Attorney but he had that strong yearning to focus on leadership and people development. He left the government after five years in service and established POINT 3750 TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT SERVICES. He now provides trainings, workshops, and coaching sessions and is an active Resource Speaker in several Government Agencies and Private Organizations.
Falling in love with Strengths Advocacy
Working with Persons with Substance Abuse Disorder, battered women, and Children in Conflict with the Law in his previous job as a Public Attorney has opened his eyes to the reality that everyone is talented. He searched for a system that could help him become credible in telling people about what they are good at and that’s when he learned about StrengthsFinder Assessment. He then decided to become a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach. With this new found advocacy, he actively looks for opportunities where he can deliver strengths based talks. Since then, he regularly facilitated public and in-house workshops both face to face and online.
Prison Ministry Work
He is currently the National Program Coordinator in the Philippines for The Prisoner’s Journey Program, an 8-session course delivered to our brothers and sisters in jail for them to explore who Jesus is through the book of Mark.
