Kuya Dan

Kuya Dan, as he is fondly called by many, founded and hosted Tinig Pinoy Radio 22 years ago. 
He is very active in community service which helped earn him various awards for his initiatives. In March this year he was awarded, by Foreign Affair Minister John Baird, the prestigious Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Medal.  Community service particularly geared towards the youth has been one of his biggest advocacies for over the better part of his adult life. He co-founded Pinoy Eh!, Ottawa’s only FilCan newspaper. He is also a regular volunteer computer instructor with Philippine Centre Canada. An advocate of youth development programs, he steers Tinig Pinoy to serve as breeding ground for future journalists. He is a strong supporter of OFWs (overseas Filipino workers) to whom he dedicates the founding of Tinig Pinoy Radio.
 He is father to four lovely daughters and an equally independent-minded son. He believes that we are what we are because of those around us.
