Freddie is the President and Executive Director of Linis Gobyerno, no political
affiliations (ever since), a consistent businessman/ entrepreneur exposed to all
walks of life, who is fed up and tired with the prevailing system
of systemic Graft and Corrupt practices in Government.
Freddie took up business courses but is a graduate of Criminology with units in Business Management at the UP College Baguio.
He was born and raised in Manila but has made Baguio City his permanent residence.
He traces his roots at Sta. Barbara, Pangasinan (mother's side) and Negros Oriental (father's side).
1997 Freddie put up Farco Trimedia Ventures (then, a sole proprietorship)
and initially ventured into Radio and Cable TV pre and post production services
(audio-video); to date he is the
General Manager of FTV Inc. and the
founding publisher of The Junction Newspaper (a local news paper based in Baguio City,
circulating within Baguio, Benguet Province). Freddie avers that the big difference with The
Junction newspaper is that it is a non-political paper, hence, it has no strings
attached, nor any political debts to any
person or political group. Other than this, The Junction Newspaper has taken the
self appointed role of fizcaliser
to various local and national government offices
and the media industry in general.
He is also a columnist of the said paper, and a member of the National Press
Club (NPC) & Philippine Press Institute (PPI).
