Junior Editor joining the roster of creativity
Kobe Laurena helps in the editing process as Village Pipol’s Junior Editor.
He is a writer who loves to tell stories from the perspectives of different people and everyday life.
He began his writing career as a Staff Writer for StarStudio.ph, a former entertainment and lifestyle website of ABS-CBN.
Quite recently, he has written for pikapika.ph under Viva Communications, Inc. and the Content Studio of Inquirer.net.
Apart from the pen, he loves to pick up the lipstick to transform into his frustrated drag persona: Anita Good Lovin’.
Consequently, he aspires to combine his love for writing and drag by creating a novel, short story, or screenplay about local drag queens in the future.
Furthermore, he has an obsession with sitcoms, women’s pro-wrestling, and Funko Pops.
In his best way, Kobe will not only help in the editorial process of Village Pipol but inspire his fellow writers and co-workers with his passion for his writing craft.
Aside from being a businessman, Josh Austria has been working in PR and media industry for more more than a decade. From his years of experience as the Marketing and Advertising Head of Village Pipol Magazine, he has built strong relationships with creative people, brands, and organizations.
