  • Jam has been a freelance writer in the tech space since 2013.
  • Her byline has appeared across a variety of publications, including Digital Trends, The Daily Dot, Nautilus Magazine, and Screen Rant.
  • She has written about a wide range of topics, from tech, social media, and the coronavirus, to entertainment, lifestyle, and travel.


Jam's love of reading and writing began at an early age, and after winning several essay-writing contests she joined the school paper in both high school and college. Eventually promoted to Associate Editor there, her first writing jobs took her online, across topics as diverse as esports and technology. When she's not testing mobile apps and writing about them, she's sharing her OKCupid success story as well as her experiences as an immigrant and a stay-at-home mom to biracial children to anyone who asks. Jam's Substack newsletter chronicles her family's adventures on the road, and the search for their next home.


Jam completed three years in Computer Science with a major in Computer Engineering at a university in the Philippines, before taking a sabbatical during which she worked as a Community Officer for World Cyber Games Philippines. She returned to school to earn a bachelor's degree in Multimedia Arts.
