Since 2012, I have worked toward advancing the freedoms guaranteed under the Bill of Rights in cyberspace.  Since 2013, I have been closely involved as well in the aspects of legal compliance and documentation of technology projects. My experience ranges from the early stages of requirements documentation for the project, contract review, and up to the implementation and rollout phases. I worked closely with operations and technology people to help them marry the law with code. Aside from these, I have proven experience in the following areas: Corporation and Securities, Taxation, and Insurance industry Laws. I also have significant background in Corporate Governance, having served as Corporate Secretary of the top local companies since 2010.
