Studied in The British School of Manila, Lourdes School Quezon City and The University of the East. Currently working as a freelance article writer and presently resides in Manila.

Believes that facing the ugliness of the reality of life and accepting it is a genuine first step to attain contentedness and peace, removing the distortion and disillusion that may very well lead a person on the perception of "Hope in false pretense".

Took up Sociology in college to know the truth about society and the human psyche. Despite the evident brutality of man's ugly savage nature, Fred still believes that the human species can still evolve out of it's primitive perception of life.

"What we really have in this world is just each other and that's all there is. Bloated egotistical admiration for all of man's achievements for himself. All of these are a clear signs of insecurity and fear of the inevitable" -- Fred Jacob.

A writer not by choice but by a self consumed desperation to reach out by matter of words by that what can be written, and somehow try to send a simple message that as the whole humanity of this planet has lost a clear perspective on the "real" state of how we live our lives and our purpose for doing so.
