As a professional voice artist, he gets to play the knight, sorcerer, or leprechaun for a living. And absolutely loves his job. Also illustrated A Passion for Science and My Father the Soldier, part of Bookmark's Philippine Modern Heroes Series.

Felipe "Zig" Marasigan spends most of his time with words, which is probably the reason why he never runs out of any. And while he does believe in the might of the written word, he does believe appreciate the occasional sword now and then.
