Thank you visiting my website today! I hope you’ve enjoyed your visit! While you’re here, let me spend a moment to tell you a bit about myself.
My real name is Walt, and I was born in Angeles City, Philippines. I moved with my family to Tampa, FL, United States in the early 90s, after traveling cross-country from California. I have lived in Tampa ever since and have seen the city grow and grow. Since my childhood, I’ve always been fascinated with transportation; from airports to highways, to high-speed trains and urban subways. As a child, I used to draw illustrations of highway interchanges, overpasses, and bridges, as well as airports and rail stations. Today, I’ve been slowly working on several fantasy transport systems, which I showcase here on my website periodically.
Throughout the years, I’ve had the chance to use public transit systems in Tampa, Sarasota/Bradenton, Tallahassee, Savannah, New York City, Norfolk, Belgium, and France. I’ve also been able to use one of the primary and still popular mode of public transport in the Philippines, the Jeepney! I hope to be able to use the metro rail system in the Metro Manila area at some point in the distant future.

I earned my A.A. in Business Administration, majoring in Accounting at Hillsborough Community College in 2009. In August of 2012, I earned my B.S. in Marketing, from the University of South Florida. Depending on where my career takes me, I hope to be able to reside in another city such as Norfolk, VA in a few years.
