Hi there, I'm Dominic Ballesteros. Friends call me Nick. Colleagues in Manila called me Sir Nick but I lost the honorific title enroute to New Zealand.
Perhaps my geekiest moment was when I grabbed an HTML 4.0 book and taught myself how create websites. My second geekiest moment would be when I got a Photoshop book and taught myself how to use that as well.
I was comfortable using Windows (XP), then I got a Macbook for work which I loved, and then I'm back to Windows (7). Installed Ubuntu a couple of years back, but did not last long. But there's an XP computer at the stockroom just waiting for a new lease on life!
Due to countless client presentations and project proposals, I can declare that I am proficient than most with Microsoft Office applications.
Some years back, I was a contributing writer to the Questor Magazine (anime overload!), Guide Magazine (movies galore!) and a short stint at OFW Magazine (for Filipinos everywhere!). Got published at the December 2013 issue of Kabayan (see page 19) - it felt great to see my work published again.
Tried playing the guitar -too many strings! Tried playing the piano - too many keys! Tried playing the ukulele - love it!
Currently working as a Web Manager, and helping out with computer/network problems whenever I can. Still loads of great things to learn out there!
