I would like to congratulate Keith on his brilliant contribution to the Oceans Inc. investigation from the Pag-asa Island perspective. Keith's work really enriched the reporting on our first piece in the series, Fishers on the Frontlines, which explores how fishers across the South China Sea have been impacted by IUU fishing and the ongoing maritime territorial dispute.

I worked with Keith on the award-winning Pangolin Reports. His contributions from Palawan for Rappler were not only great reads, but also highlighted how environmental reporting is directly linked to issues of governance in a very insightful and compelling way. This is what environmental reporting should be like! Keith was a great team member and always eager to help and collaborate, braving the odds to get a great story. I hope I get to work with him again soon.

Keith is a diligent journalist who has a good grasp of the contextual background of the issues he’s reporting on. I couldn't have done well my Mongabay special story entitled, "Hits and misses for a legal tool to protect the environment in Philippines," without his help.

KA authored a fantastic feature article about our organisation and project for in 2019. Trusting he can deliver, I engaged and tapped KA to work on a number of freelance writing assignments. He's very approachable and accommodating to changes and recommendations. His outstanding output reflected his high level of professionalism and passion for his craft. If you're looking for an environmental communication assistant who's detail and deadline-oriented, I would absolutely recommend KA as your go-to guy!

In Palawan News, Keith was a lot of help to the editorial team as his submitted stories had made significant contributions to Palawan’s progress. The facts and details of his news reports were carefully strung together to ensure that people reading would understand what the stories were trying to impart. He showed exemplary dedication in delivering the news to our readers, making sure that only correct and validated stories are released and shared. He accomplished all the tasks he was given with great initiative and a positive attitude despite the hardship in often dealing with news sources.

As one of his college professors in journalism, I have seen how Keith developed not only the technical skills, but most importantly the values expected of someone eagerly wanting to be part of the media industry. He was a diligent student. He never missed deadlines. And, I am confident that he is not the kind of person who settles for mediocrity. His outputs in my class before, particularly the case analyses, were professionally written— very comprehensive and well-researched.

I met KA in one of my video production projects. I’m amazed at his body of work. Collaborating with him as writer and producer is easy. He is fast when it comes to conceptualizing topics and responding to feedbacks. He’s more than willing to share his ideas, and is on-point and will never keep you guessing. Freelance writers like KA is truly an asset to any company he works with. If I manage to bag big projects again in the future, I will surely choose KA to make my outputs highly valuable.

As my student, Keith exhibited an inquisitive mind and would like to know more about the facets of journalism in an in-depth manner. Whereas others would simply take everything as is, he would like to raise questions about critical journalism issues in the Philippines as well as around the globe...He outshined his other peers in other areas of schooling with his remarkable writing skills and the ability to articulate at a higher level than most college students.
