He has toured from San Francisco to San Diego with PaaMano Eskrima and Performing Arts, sharing the natural treasures, historical figures and martial arts culture of the Philippines. He and his family believe in giving back and helping nature so they dedicated their California tour to raising awareness for the critically endangered spices, the Haring Ibon or the Philippine Eagle. Roland brought the Haring Ibon to life for audiences all over California.
"Forgotten Angels"
Because every dog PTS
is an angel lost to the world.

Roland is also an inspired sculpture. His sculptures are surreal and layered. He brings meaning and artistry into the creation of each piece. He made a special piece as part of his senior final AP project titled "Forgotten Angels". It depicts what happens to a dog after it's been PTS. Here is a link to the original blog post about it.
