Jeff Alagar

I’m a 29-year old Volleyball addict and events singer! Used to work as a Digital Marketing and Social Media Specialist, I started blogging last 2008 but had to go back to being an employee at 2011. In the end, I have resorted to going back to full-time blogging last 2014 and focused on Philippine Spas and Couple Travel in the Philippines. Find out more about me by checking out Jeff Alagar: My Personal Portfolio.
