"There are things I could live without for the moment." 31st of #project366

A post shared by Markku Seguerra (@rebelpixel) on

I’m Markku Seguerra and this is rebelpixel.com, my weblog. In the past, I used to (rarely) post about photography and web design, and then pretend to write prose that’s worth reading. At some point, it simply became a personal blog that is sometimes updated when life’s milestones come along.

I guess that’s the easier way to do blogging, just like life—write about what you find interesting, work on challenges worth taking on.

I am a thirty–something self-confessed Filipino geek living in Marikina City in the Philippines. Here’s a photo of me with my wife Hana and our little boy Mikku:

I make a living building websites, hacking on code, and writing content for the web.

Being one of the first WordPress users in the country, I’ve written a handful of plugins and articles on the topic in the past and was a speaker in the first few WordCamps in the Philippines. I like using and building on WordPress and other open-source software.

I was the technical cofounder of the BlogBank (blogbank.com.ph), the first blog advertising company in the Philippines, and was the platform architect for the PCIJ. I have experience on web app development, data journalism, signal analytics, digital marketing—among other things—drop me a line should you need help related to those topics, or to simply say hi!

I am a published photographer who takes on weddings, engagement shoots, and sports, but you may have also encountered my name as a contributing writer for local publications including the Manila Bulletin and the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

You can reach me via email at markku(at)rebelpixel.com and I’m also on twitter as @markku.

Here’s my archives for your perusal, if you got to this point and you’re still reading.

By the way, I really like riding a bicycle.
