Jhuny was born in Manila, The Philippines, and was brought up in the outback town of Katherine in the Northern Territory.
Jhuny's dance career began in 1997, performing in the Australian Choreographic Centre's inaugural fellowship project The Thousand Mile Stare, choreographed by Brett Daffy. In 2002 Jhuny completed his Bachelor of Arts with First Class Honours at Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), implementing evolutionary algorithms to choreographic processes. While a student at WAAPA, Jhuny performed at World Dance 2000 Seoul, in Taiwan with Shih Gee-Tze's Acme Physical and with One Extra Dance collaborating with many of Sydney's established independent artists. His choreographic projects have incorporated digital technologies such as multimedia applications, human movement modelling and digital video editing applications as choreographic tools.
In 2002, Jhuny became a founding member of Link Dance Company at WAAPA, directed by Chrissie Parrott. Jhuny performed across the country in works by some of Perth's leading Choreographers including Jon Burtt and Katie Lavers (Skadada), Angelyn Diaz, Chrissie Parrott and Sue Peacock. Jhuny also danced with the highly acclaimed and outrageously funny German a Capella group 6 Zylinder and was honoured to meet and perform in front of Merce Cunningham.
Jhuny has also worked as a software engineer and his other achievements include the highest University Entrance Score in the Northern Territory, the Australian National University's National Undergraduate Scholarship, a Bachelor of Science majoring in pure mathematics, and the Northern Territory Department of Arts and Museums Arts Scholarship.
Jhuny joined Bangarra Dance Theatre and performed all repertoire from 2003 to 2012. His career highlights include performing a solo originally created for Russell Page - from Warrnambool to Washington, D.C. He has been excited to explore the unique perspective that Bangarra embodies in its people and its works. After retiring from full-time dance, Jhuny worked with the Youth Program Team in delivering Bangarra's flagship youth program, Rekindling.
Jhuny hopes to find some kind of balance to combine the variety of his interests to express his own worldview.
