Writer Biography – Rodrigo Juatco

7ee5774a6b headshot

After receiving a BA in English Literature from Simon Fraser University in 2004, Rodrigo Juatco went on to ghost write for Filipino-Canadian newsprint on his spare time while working as a warehouse Supervisor for the next ten years. Movies, however, have always been a passion of his. And so he began the arduous task of mastering the craft of screenwriting. He has since placed in the Quarter finals in the Page Awards International on two separate occasions. Though writing is now a hobby, Rodrigo hopes to one day pursue his passion on a full time basis.
