About The Young Juanderer


More Than Just a Content Creator

My name is John, also known as “The Young Juanderer”. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology degree back in 2016, and I pursued a career as a graphic / web designer.

Ever since high school, I loved editing photos and videos. I have always dreamed of being the guy behind the visual effects in movies, like making the Statue of Liberty collapse, or creating disaster scenes worthy of a Hollywood blockbuster.

Then, in 2017, everything changed. I took my first trip to El Nido, Palawan and was blown away by the beauty of the Philippines. That’s when I decided to start creating travel contents featuring the stunning landscapes and vibrant culture of the country. At first, I experimented with different formats, from slideshows to super weird vlogs. But eventually, I found my niche as a travel content creator.

I decided to name my channel “The Young Juanderer”, inspired by my idea that traveling makes us feel young. Even if we’ve visited the same destination twice, there’s always something new to discover and learn.

While I’m still a full-time web designer, I’m also dedicated to growing as a travel and food content creator. My goal is to make a difference in the places I visit, and to share the beauty of the world with others. I’m excited to continue growing “The Young Juanderer”, and I hope you’ll join me on this journey!


Hobbies and Personal Life

Theater Actor

Ever since high school, my passion for being a theater actor has burned brightly. In 2023, I seized the opportunity to join Teatro Caviteño, a thriving theater community based in Cavite. After auditioning and being accepted, I made my debut in a musical. Now, I am relentlessly pursuing theater both in Cavite and Manila.

Spotify Podcast

I recently launched my podcast, “Midnight Thoughts With John,” available on Spotify. The podcast aims to delve into the issues and topics that keep us awake at night, causing anxiety and restlessness. Through engaging discussions, I offer insights and practical tips to address these concerns, with the ultimate goal of providing support to those in need.

Mental Health Advocate

In 2023, I received a diagnosis of ADHD, which provided me with a deeper understanding of myself. Inspired by this newfound knowledge, I decided to leverage my platform to support individuals grappling with mental health challenges.

Fitness Journey

 In the past, I struggled with weight as a self-described “chubby guy.” However, when the pandemic hit, I made a conscious decision to prioritize my well-being and embark on a fitness journey. While my goal isn’t to attain a bodybuilder physique like John Cena, I am committed to integrating regular exercise into my lifestyle to ensure long-term health and boost my confidence.

Photobooth Business

Since 2022, I have been running a successful photobooth business alongside my partner. When you book our services, you can count on me personally operating the photobooth at your event. For rates, inquiries, and booking, please visit our website.
