kuya [koo-yah] : filipino term for big brother.

Kuya is a term that's used for family. It's a sign of respect and represents a message of inclusiveness and closeness. These are the things that I want my business to entail.

I created Kuya Kollective to be a platform that is able to cultivate the minds of creative nomads like myself. Networking with the right people can open up many opportunities for you and your business. Kuya Kollective connects you with local entrepreneurs that are looking to collaborate in order to promote mutual growth. 

I aim to work with people who have a desire to grow in their respected professions. for inquiries, email contact@projectkuya.com and join the kollective.

"God gave us two hands. one to receive with and the other to give with."

It all started when I had the opportunity to live in the Philippines for two years. I was submersed in the most beautiful culture with the most kind hearted people. When I returned to the united states in 2015, I made a goal to do all that I can to help those in need in the Philippines.

The Filipino people became my family and I became their kuya. I feel a sincere obligation within my soul that calls me to help those in need from the islands of the Philippines.

I've been blessed to work in the fashion industry as a stylist. I've always had an interest in fashion, but I wanted my work to mean something. Kuya Kollective was created as a way for me to help those in fashion so that I could help those in need.

Every year, I assemble a group of volunteers to help a humanitarian project that I created called Project Kuya. We've been able to help hundreds of individuals since 2016 and strive to help our humanitarian efforts continue to grow.
