In 2006, I began my professional career as a writer and content developer for Hawaii-based media and social enterprise, Greater Good Inc., which aimed to promote social entrepreneurship and corporate social responsibility.
I left the organization not only with a wealth of experience but also the heart for societal involvement. Thus, when I joined a software development company I brought with me the value of social entrepreneurship. In 2008, a few months in to my new position, I started Greater Good Philippines, where I told the stories of social entrepreneurs, volunteers, philanthropists, and ordinary citizens doing extraordinary things for their community, in hopes of motivating and inspiring others to do the same.
In essence, Greater Good Philippines is an offshoot of Greater Good Inc., albeit in a smaller scale.
After countless hours of interviews and dozens of individuals featured, Greater Good Philippines takes on a new form–towards the promotion of sustainable living in the country particularly in the Metro Manila. This is born out of my passion for cycling, which includes bike commuting. Thus, starting 2016, Greater Good Philippines will be mostly about cycling and sustainable transportation/living, without forgetting its roots in social entrepreneurship.
