While most people would use misfortune as a crutch, Niko chose to become his family’s beacon of light, through his undaunted attitude and impeccable comedic timing. Niko is well known in his circle of friends and family for his witty remarks and sidesplitting stories that stems from his affable personality and ingenious mind. Anyone who meets him is charmed by his jovial appeal. Although photography drives his passion, Niko is also a sports-enthusiast. He roots for the ball club, Manchester United and has watched his idol, LeBron James play in the United Center at Chicago.
Niko, his camera, and his tripod have traveled across lands and seas. He has captured the intricate and natural beauty of several urban and remote locations in the Philippines, from the sparkling beaches of Boracay to the breathtaking sunset of Batanes. His travels are not limited to the islands but also to most cities in Asia including South Korea, Vietnam, and Hong Kong.
