Biography: Clarence was born in Manila, Philippines, and has lived in San Diego since 1998. He is passionate about the arts and studied as a music major at the University of California in Riverside with an emphasis on music education.

For several years, Clarence taught voice and piano lessons at multiple local studios to students from age four to sixty-five. In 2009, Clarence and his brother, Cye (who also previously worked for RU), started an entertainment production company that produced a benefit show for the VH1 Save the Music Foundation and an annual dance competition for aspiring dancers called "Artofficial." After establishing his own organization, Clarence fell in love with the business industry and decided to pursue a degree in business. Before coming to Rehab United, Clarence worked as Director of Operations for a major massage franchise and developed a passion for the wellness industry which helped with his transition to RU.

 

After years of studying business, learning from innovative mentors and business people, and gaining valuable professional experience, Clarence discovered a strong passion for the marketing and brand development side of business administration and realized that it was the perfect career path for him. Clarence is now in the process of obtaining his marketing degree and hopes to one day open his own marketing agency.
