the start of something big

For 14 years, the ANiTOKiD has given his all in his career. He has been an information analyst, indexer, and editor at IAC Corp., positions requiring a superior grasp of the English language, excellent communication skills, and very good writing skills.

He holds the records for the most number of work done in a day, week, month, and year in every project he was assigned to, e.g., Ebsco Publishing, Information Access, Derwent EI, RDS, KnowPeople, and the American Petroleum Institute. As one of his superiors put it, "The ANiTOKiD represents the cream of our abstracting/indexing/editing group." "He is the best thing that has ever happened to this company!"

He is the incumbent secretary of the Makati Cinema Square Association Billiards Club at the AMF-Puyat, Superbowl, a position he has hold for several years. He has reached the pinnacle of success in the sport by placing and winning at tournaments and being a tirador (someone who is managed financially to play pool and win). The ANiTOKiD is known as CHAMP in billiard circles, just like his idol, The Magician, Efren "Bata" Reyes. He is equally gracious in victory and defeat.

The ANiTOKiD is also into photography. He has consistently placed first in all the competitions during his high school days at Marist School. His favorite medium is black and white, and his theme is about the different facets of life. He is also an avid stamp collector, a hobby he started when he was just in grade school; his collection now runs into the thousands.

He is very much blessed with four beautiful children; twins Levin Diosdado and Kevin Francis, and daughters Maria Agatha and Maria Patricia. Dado and Kiko are very good at playing chess. There was one time that Kiko beat his teacher with a 7-0 score! Agi is Daddy's little girl. She writes her dad notes and letters at least twice a week! Agi is currently a scholar at Our Lady of the Lake School, where she won the school's beauty and brains pageant in her first try! She is also a pingpong champion, 1st runner-up in badminton, and an active member of the student council. Patis, the youngest of them all, tries to emulate her Ate in every way she can. She idolizes her ate and is very loving to her other siblings.

The ANiTOKiD is impossible to dislike. He says so little and let his actions do the talking. He smiles mostly with his eyes and never complains; he epitomizes the true meaning of the word "pakikisama".

Stick with the ANiTOKiD...he will take you places!!!
