Hey, I'm Aldrich!

I'm a misfit, born and raised in the Philippines. I grew up surrounded by people who worshipped conventional paths. But I've always been someone who would rather die pursuing something difficult than settle for something average.

I learned to code at 13 and have since worked with amazing founders, engineers, operators, and teams to build ideas from 0 to 1. I started a company when I was 18, which was acquired by an AI studio founded by the former GP of First Spark Ventures (Eric Schmidt's VC fund), an ex-Palantir strategist, etc.

I've spent the past few years trying to break into the SF tech scene because it was when I first encountered it that I discovered there were others like me, something I hadn't found in my school, family, or neighborhood.

I'm into emerging technologies, hard tech, moonshots, and I want to spend the rest of my life working on solving the biggest and hardest problems that matter.
