Andrei Tupaz used to work as a primary school teacher in the Philippines but now lifts heavy boxes of produce and stocks shelves five days a week at a supermarket in Wellington, New Zealand. In his spare time, when he isn’t recovering from all the lifting he does at work, he works out at the gym, or spends time with his wife doing extremely productive things like lazing about near the Wellington wharf, watching shows and movies, or acceding to his body’s gastronomic demands. Although he considers himself incredibly uncoordinated, he is also interesed in gymnastic-like activities, and has vowed that 2012 is the year he’ll definitely take circus/chinese pole classes at a circus school in Wellington.
No favorite genre, really. I'll read any story, long or short, in any genre.
Aside from my love for reading short stories and novels, I’m also a fan of a lot of comic books, cartoons and movies. I love Hayao Miyazaki’s movies, the Avatar: The Last Airbender cartoon series, Christopher Nolan’s movies, the Sandman, Y: The Last Man, and Fables graphic novels, and anything by Matt Kindt. I’ve read some of Budjette Tan and Kajo’s Trese (the ones available online), and I now consider myself a fan of their work. Now all I have to do is to get a relative in the Philippines to buy all the Trese volumes, and have them sent to me.
