Originally a Math Major at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Jeff first realized his love for film and tv production in 2007 after he transferred to the College of Mass Communication to major in Film and Audio-Visual Communication.

Right after college Jeff pursued a brief career as a Production Designer for TV commercials and TV shows doing mostly set designing, wardrobe styling and props fabrication. He left for Phnom Penh, Cambodia in 2011 to venture into the advertising industry but returned to Manila, Philippines in 2013 when he realized his desire to learn and explore the art of makeup.

 Jeff trained at the Cinema Makeup School in 2014 where, for the first time ever, he got exposed to the full range of makeup for screen. He underwent intense training in beauty makeup, hairstyling, airbrush makeup, character makeup, special effects and prosthetics makeup.

Jeff has been a part of several film and TV productions in the Philippines and has recently been active shooting movies in various locations for Cambodian, French, Chinese, Japanese and Australian film production outfits.

A lover of places, people and culture Jeff's favorite thing about his job are the endless possibilities and opportunities to meet and work with professionals from around the world in the most random and interesting places and circumstances. The more challenging the projects are, the better!

As a makeup artist, Jeff's strength lies in his years of experience doing film and TV production work where he developed a strict sense of composure, professionalism, and competence.

His priority is to meet his clients' expectations. His goal is to always produce a look that is necessary and appropriate whether be it for screen-- TV, commercials or film-- or live events.

Whenever he gets work done, Jeff always enjoys a long night of conversations and laughs with friends over coffee... or drinks and of course, an uninterrupted 12-hour sleep.
