About Me

You don't really have to read this post unless you want to know me more.

OK, if you're really interested, here it is. Don't tell me I didn't warn you :)

My name is Froilan, but you may call me Froi. I'm Poy to my close friends.

I am an environmental educator, trainer and consultant. I am also a businessman and and a web developer.

Currently, I am connected with the following organizations:

Add Up! Volunteers, as its Chairman and Founding member. If you want to know more about Add Up!, please visit our website here.

Mother Earth Foundation, as its Vice President for Special Projects and as member of the Board of Trustees. If you want to know more about MEF, click here.

Camp Explore, as its Program Director and Head of Environmental Education. For more information, please visit the website here.

I am also a member of various environmental organization, if you want to know more, please visit my other blog Inside a Green Mind where I will showcase my advocacies.

I am a proud Ilonggo, growing up in Jaro, Iloilo and Guimaras where I had the best time of my life.

I studied elementary and high school in Colegio de San Jose - one of the oldest schools in Iloilo and the Philippines.

I spent my first year of college in UP Visayas, where we climb mountains and go the the beach to celebrate flunking our Algebra exams.

On my second year, I transferred to UP Diliman where I met some great people who are friends up to now.

My first job was with the Center for Environmental Awareness an Education. I will be writing a separate post on this experience.

What else can I share?

Oh well, I know I'm a bit crazy. I am a non conformist, a hard headed bull - being the taurean that I am. I enjoy traveling, whether alone or with friends (visit my travel blog - Lonely Pinoy Traveler).

I enjoy reading, from the newspaper used to wrap dried fish to novels by John Grisham and Ayn Rand, to Readers Digest and Time Magazine, to National Geographic - whatever I can lay my hands and eyes on.

I enjoy eating, from home cooked comfort foods to Thai and Viet Cuisine, to cakes and salads to Chocolates, I love them all. I used to not like Jap and Chinese foods thinking they are full of meow hairs, but now I ply the Chinatown and I super dig california maki! Yumm!

I don't like to party the traditional way. I don't like going to the bars. I would prefer to host a small party at home. I rarely drink and I don't smoke. (I will be writing a separate article on smoking soon.)

I love the beach and the mountains. I climb mountains regularly and I get my tan (or sun burn hehehe) the natural way - by spending countless hours under the sun.

I hate texting! I would rather talk with someone face to face.

That's it for now. If there are other things you want to know, I would love to hear from you. Otherwise, please keep coming back to this site and get to know one crazy guy and his take on things.
