I am Marco Cabazal, an iOS Developer (iPhone+iPad) and the Octopus’ Garden is my personal blog.
In it, you can find mainly photographs of varying subjects that I find interesting.
Occassionally, you can also find me writing about miscellaneous topics like the many experiences revolving around technology and how it affects our lives, life in general, and of course, photography, which is something I’ve been in love with since I was a child
I ride a yellow Vespa named Frances whom I plan to take with me as I struggle to write my own book. The inspiration for the name Frances, in case you’re wondering, was Frances Mayes who wrote the book Under The Tuscan Sun, and whose character was portrayed by Diane Lane in the post-book film. The book/movie was a subtle eye opener of sorts that took me where I am today.
There are a lot of stories to tell and I’m hoping I’d be able to write them all down just for closure. So please stay around by subscribing to the site feed as I’d be sending out stuff in the next few days.
For the past decade (2000-2011) I had the opportunity to work for Wolfpac Mobile, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Smart Communications. I was in a team doing exciting stuff for mobile and the web. However, at some point in time, I knew I had to make an exodus so I could pursue the things I’m more passionate about on a clean slate. Sometimes, we’ll just have to step way back and let our right-brain take more control.
So, I, with the help of really great friends, decided to put up a small iOS apps development company in Manila and it’s called, The Chill Mill. Depending on context, I’d probably write about our ongoing adventures there in here as well.
Update (7 May 2013): I’ve just been hired to help Tiaxa Chile expand their development efforts into Southeast Asia. It’s been a great ride so far. :)
