About Me

Hello! I’m Arnelle, a software developer based in Cebu, Philippines. I enjoy building things using good old HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Web Platform APIs.

I'm a Google Developers Expert in Web Technologies, and an active volunteer and speaker for local tech communities, giving talks and conducting workshops about various technical topics.

When not busy experimenting with new Web APIs, I like to spend my time taking photos, playing video games, or practicing my card tricks.
