Transition To Tracker

The Urban Tracker started out in 2010 as an experimental pet project with an initial format as commentary postings exploring current trends and issues dealing with Pinoy life with its previous title "Sketch Me If You Can". The idea of shifting the title to The Urban Tracker came eventually with a new orientation.

In 2011, The Urban Tracker started charting his travels and came to realize the significance of featuring stories of rural interest. His previous work as a field researcher enabled him to explore deeper rural areas and mingle with locals. He found social tourism a worthwhile pursuit in the workings of his field exercise and deemed it more fulfilling and interesting. He unearthed insights, stories of human interest that may be unpopular and unfamiliar and foreseen them as his lifetime contribution to what is general.

The Passion of the Tracker

Thus the passion to write about his encounters and with this documentation, The Urban Tracker hopefully inspires the readers to take a better look on people’s lives elsewhere that can be worth squeezing out and make a statement in the tracker’s writing style and formula of reading engagement. The tracker also features travel thoughts, tips, photo essays depicting of simple joys on the side. Through the years, the blog is a work of development, or say evolution verging towards the search of enlightening thought in any happenings both in a rural and urban setting.

As of now, The Urban Tracker’s alter ego is part of the corporate world force and is striving his best balancing act with an enlightened view of timelined encounter in the city setting. It may be an event, activity shunning materialism and vanities yet receptive towards empowerment, advocacy with its non-conformist approach and stance, always forward in uncovering lessons,  magnifying simplicity, essentially heartwarming but most of all doesn't leave you empty.

The Urban Tracker’s area of interest includes music, kiteflying, homestays, backpacking, rural exploring.
