About Me

Hello, Friend. I’m Sonny. I am what they call a Crazy Poor Asian.

I’m a Filipino-American entrepreneur; a failed jazz vocalist turned Licensed Acupuncturist and energy healer in Chicago, IL. I’m also an amateur writer and anxiety/depression fighter.

“Rebellious Qi” (pronounced chee) in Chinese Medicine is a pathological condition when energy in a particular part of the body flows in the opposite direction of how it’s supposed to (i.e. me vs society). One symptom of Rebellious Qi is vomit. Thus, this journal is my mind-vomit.

“Mr. Robot.” The word “Tao” is a double entendre, in Chinese it means “The Way” and in Filipino it means, “person.” As a person whose endeavor is to be one with The Way, I marry the Chinese principle of Qi and the Filipino shamanic principle of Spirit in order to hack into society’s programming to create healing for myself and in the world around me.

I’m an introvert, loner, and individualist; a nameless soul trapped in a megalomaniac world. Unplugged and deprogrammed from the matrix, failing and flailing, an army of one, leading my own spiritual rebellion. God, that was overdramatic.


Really, I’m just practicing my writing chops here, scribbling about both everything and nothing at all.
