Paolo is a husband, father, (dog)lover, cook, nerd & designer. 

After completing his bachelor's degree in architecture from the University of the Philippines, he was swept away to Canada, where he somehow stumbled upon the curious world of product design. 

Convinced by his wife, Diana,  to pursue yet another time-consuming bachelor's degree at an age when most would be found shopping around for dishwashers and car seats, he managed to graduate from the Industrial Design program at the Ontario College of Art and Design, where he realized it truly is never too late to hang out with hipsters and drink from a masonry jar.

He currently works as an industrial designer at Teknion, where he is deeply immersed in the rigor of product development and manufacturing, and exploring the different possibilities for the future of work.  

For more information on his work, his dreams, and his epic failures, he's always available for conversation, especially the nerdy ones.
