Ted is a man of many talents: creative craftsmanship, painting, dance, and music. As a young boy of 10, he started taking voice lessons with Maestra Teresita Agana Santos, until his voice broke. He, then, resumed lessons at the age of 16. His vibrant baritone was put to good use at the Opera Chorus of the Philippines. Today he finds that he has become a heldentenor.
A BS in Business Administration graduate of Colegio de San Juan de Letran, theater, however, has always been a great part of his life. After college, he took classes in stage management and theater lighting design at the CCP. He later appeared as Mangaawit and Taong Bayan in Gantimpala Theater Foundation’s production of Noli Me Tangere; and as Antonio in Pinocchio produced at Luce Auditorium in Silliman University. In Hinilawod, he has the longest lines, weaving the tapestry of the entire story together as the ancient mananalaysay or storyteller, Buyong Balaknon.
