He also shared that he was a construction worker before he got into acting.

“Pero before batang kalye lang ako. Sa kalye lang ako, pero may bahay pa rin ako. I mean hindi naman talaga ‘yung batang lansangan na palaboy. I mean parang lagi akong nasa daan. Then nag-construction din ako before. Construction worker.”
