Cesar Julius V. Parroco, Jr.
Manager of Technical and Web Communications
Cesar Julius V. Parroco, Jr. Is one Filipino overseas who has earned respect and admiration from the locals and his fellow expatriates?
He had been in Dubai for 14 years and counting the days he first set on the desert, there is no question that he had achieved much for his family and the Filipino community.
His appointment as Manager of Technical and Web Communications allows him to travel in and out of the United Arab Emirates almost on a weekly basis. He juggles a dual role which to him is “both challenging and exciting.”
“Since everything now is digital, the focus of the company’s marketing activities is into this arena and I am filling the role of managing its online strategy that includes its social media network not only in the Middle East but as well the whole of Africa.” Under his wings are the activities of Nikon School, a Nikon educational initiative for the community by teaching not only basic courses to new buyers of digital SLR camera but also delivering advance sessions to advance enthusiast. Oftentimes, he also acts as a resource person for queries related to camera operation and technical details.
This proud son of Bacolod City loves to tell stories but admits that he’s not excellent in communicating with words. Through photographs, he expresses what he feels and what he thinks when words seem not enough. Indeed, this art medium has changed the way he looked at life.
“When you love photography, you begin to notice little things and you become curious in everything. This medium has allowed me to meet a lot of incredible people especially those who share the same passion with me. I believe I got into this because I am the kind of person that always wants to learn something new. I believe that whatever you’ve learned now will be with you forever and even to your next life.”
His interest was developed when he joined his first company in Brunei Darussalam. “The boss was a painting fanatic. This is where I have learned how to appreciate the value of paintings, color, compositions and feelings that go with a painting even though I don’t know how to paint. This is the time when I was exposed to some camera gears.”
