About NiteWriter

“Live to Inspire and Encourage”

I am the Nite Writer with the real name of John Lloyd Cruz, este Ron Mia pala. I used the title Nite Writer because ideas to write often come during night time. I am a Database Programmer/Analyst by profession and a blogger, poet, mountaineer, singer, dancer, actor (aspiring) on my idle time.

I created this blog site because I love to write. I use this also as a channel of my frustrations, sentiments, depression, happiness, triumph and inspiration. Through this I also want to share some part of me to those who got interested in visiting this small space. I may not be so profound in words, but as simple as the words I write here, is the simple reason I am WRITING, TO CONNECT with different PEOPLE WHO LOVE TO READ.

Please feel free to comment on any post for your suggestions or violent reactions. Any comments will be taken constructively.


59976_1428135866488_1325568108_31069090_5349449_nBorn on January 21,1983, I was raised in the humble town of Majayjay, Laguna at the foot of Mt. Banahaw. Studied at a Public Elementary School, then went on a Private Catholic High School. Had a 2 year stint in Sintang Paaralan (Polytechnic University of the Philippines), and graduated at AMA Computer University with a degree in Information Technology.

I am an avid listener of radio, both AM and FM bands. Loves pop, slow rock and RNB music as much as current affairs and news programs. A Twitter and Facebook addict.


solobigAm also an outdoor person being a mountaineer member of CALM mountaineering group. Have climbed Mt. Pico de Loro in Cavite, Mt. Makulot in Batangas,  Mt. Natib and Mt. Tarak in Bataan, Mt. Cinco Picos in Zambales, Mt. Zembrano in Rizal, Mt. Cristobal in Quezon, Mt. Batulao in Batangas, and our very own Mt. Banahaw in Laguna/Quezon. Aside from mountaineering I also love swimming, bowling, table tennis and playing playstation.

  1. Magka-batch lang tayo, bro. So, I hope you don’t mind if I “order” you to refrain from attaching SIR to my name. 🙂
