Dalimag, more popularly known as Andoy, had already graduated in college at the International School of Asia and the Pacific.

Andoy’s life was forever changed when a tourist uploaded a video of him cheerfully guiding tourists in Callao Cave in English language.

ABS-CBN’s Maalala Mo Kaya (MMK) featured his life, with then child star Zaijian Jaranilla acting as him and actor Zoren Legazpi as his father.

In 2015, the Department of Tourism (DOT) awarded as one of recipients of the Tourism Star Philippines, together with TV host Drew Arellano and then Albay Governor Joey Salceda.

He is now working with A&A Travel and Tours, a tour provider business based in Cagayan.
