About the Instructor: Pappu de Leon is an alumnus of TWI and is part of the school's first and official houseteam, Housekeeping Improv. He considers chancing upon improv in 2016 as the best plot twist of his life so far. Between then and now, he has been regularly performing with a number of improv groups like db Improv, Pochinki Palz, memeprxv, and the award-winning musical improv duo, Autochongz. He is also involved in socially relevant groups like Maki Improv and Improvisers For Leni.

Outside of Improv, Pappu works as a food scientist by day and is 1/4 of indie rock band Oh, Flamingo! by night. On the side, he runs an online merch shop for local independent artists and heads operations for BeefX Burgers. During whatever free time he has left, he enjoys working on a lot of hobbies such as household repairs, tinkering with electronics, and making longganisa.
