Ace as he is fondly called, successfully ventured into several business endeavors with his friends after college.

After years of gaining experience in the private sector, He decided to enter politics to follow the footsteps of his father. He ran as congressman and won in the district his father once served in the province of Surigao del Norte in the north eastern part of the island of Mindanao. He served as member for three (3) consecutive terms of the Philippine House of Representatives during the 11th, 12th and 13th congresses.
