Hi! I'm Gilbert the Great. That's my surname in English.

Yours truly is a theorist and, accordingly, a writer. And that's a theory: Thinker-Writer Theory.

Although I'm not a native English speaker, I can safely say I'm a native English writer. In all my academic schooling I can count all the essays I wrote in the vernacular with just my five fingers. Why? Because the medium of instruction in Philippine schools is English.

Actually, I honed my written communication skills when I took up Master of Business Administration in an Ivy...

Service Description

Thinker-Writer

I'm a writer and, at the same time, a thinker.
A writer is a thinker, not the opposite,
For a thinker is not always a good writer,
But a writer is a thinker in every bit.

A writer is a thinker teeming with fodder.
However a thinker has many things to say,
But if he can't write them on a piece of paper,
How can he purvey serious or funny essay?

I'm also an architect by education,
Turned estimator and quantity surveyor.
At least, I can make proper sentence construction
And draw buildings with only a word processor.

Not a few architects are lacking in grammar.
Many buildings failed in their intended function,
Not because of bad planning and awful glamour,
But due to specs' wrong spelling and punctuation.

I'm also a no-nonsense business strategist,
Fond of history and war music videos.
War strategies and guerrilla tactics in gist
Can apply to business management, I suppose.

German war marches Erika and Panzerlied,
Russian Farewell of Slavianka and Sacred War,
La Marseillaise of Napoleon Bonaparte –
All teach of survival skills too hard to ignore.

Some say that I'm also a lesser-known poet,
I'm not so sure if they are just tickling my ear.
The truth is that I can't help but be a prophet,
But this is a secret between you and me here.

A poet's a prophet; a prophet's a poet.
For a real prophet ought to wax poetic,
Or else he can be mistaken for a muppet,
And can't expect his intrinsic antics to tick.
