Edric is a Changemaker. Across his 20-year career, he had a 10-year corporate stint that provided him the tools that lead to his social entrepreneurship journey.
Over a 10-year period, he launched successful new brands under Del Monte Philippines as Brand Manager (2003-2008), built premium housing developments and managed an ultra-luxury leasing operation under Ayala Land Inc. as both Leasing Officer and Project Development Assistant (2000-2003), and negotiated various high-profile corporate leasing contracts under CB Richard Ellis as Senior Negotiator (1999-2000).
He co-authored a pioneering book and guide on homeschooling in the Philippines called “Why You Should Homeschool”. He helped mount three (3) global home education conferences across Germany, Brazil, and Russia, as a Board Member of the Global Home Education Exchange (GHEX). He also acquired the Registered Financial Planner (RFP) certification and became a personal finance columnist of various publications. Finally, he helped launch the Family Ministry at his local church Christ’s Commission Fellowship (CCF) that continues to mount events and programs that help families resolve various issues. In 2016, he was nominated for the Ten Outstanding Young Men award. He continues to look for ways to pursue this quest and is currently dabbling in agriculture and tech. But he most enjoys being with his family: award-winning blogger wife Joy, and their six (6) wonderful children.
His focus is now on the education and equipping of parents and families in the areas of personal finance, learning, and parenting. His desire is to change the world, one family at a time.
