Posted by Carlo Angelo Suñga , , , ,

Everyone has their own story to tell. Such is the case for OOm’s silent yet comedic Web Application Developer, Verdel Manzano. Take a deeper look into our resident quiet man and learn more about his personal life and perspective of OOm’s work ethics.

  1. What is your role in OOm? I am one of internal systems developer.

I do the creating and upgrading of system functions used by our co-employees for the benefit of company.

 

  1. What motivates you to be productive every day?

In my everyday work, I always remember this saying, “do what you love”. Passion makes great things no matter how big or small it is.

 

  1. As a professional, what do you consider to be your biggest achievement so far?

Currently, my work position today is my biggest achievement so far. When I was studying college I dreamt to be a systems developer and now it happened. Oh yeah!

 

  1. Among all your co-workers, who would you consider as your favorite, and why?

There is no one other than Pao, our systems team lead. He is realistic about work, shares some tips to be a good developer, and most especially, he’s a role model to us.

 

  1. If you could improve something about the office, what would it be and why?

Playing sports every week or every month (e.g basketball or badminton). It will have a very positive impact that will create great camaraderie among the team especially since we are growing and growing.

 

  1. Describe yourself with a film you love.

I describe myself as Hanamichi Sakuragi of Slamdunk (anime film). Since day one, Hanamichi was so unfamiliar and foolish about playing basketball. Like me on my first computer programming lesson, I am unfamiliar and foolish. I realized that the beginning is always the hardest, that’s why I just keep working and working to be the best at what I can.

 

  1. If you had superpowers, what would they be and how would you use them?

I would choose Professor X. I will use his power of creating total amnesia on many criminals and terrorists in the world. Also, I will know their bad plans by using the power of telepathy to help mankind.

 

  1. What is your passion outside of work?

When I am off at work on the weekend, I play basketball with my friends. A basketball court is where I feel most at home and it is the one place on Earth I can be where I know what I’m doing and what I’m talking about.

 

  1. If you could travel back in time, where and when would that be?

I prefer to choose World War 2. If I lived during that time, I will be a Filipino soldier to help all the Filipino and American soldiers who battled against Japanese Soldiers for the independence of the Philippines.

 

  1. What do you love about OOm?

Passion, transparency, talent, and futuristic.
