Tooth Less gained interest in role playing with online friends on February 2011 after he was added by Dreamworks Animation's How To Train Your Dragon furry fans from a Toothless fan page, Night Fury "Toothless" in Facebook (which he administered during the early 2012). On May 2011, he was friended by Flamey Akizuki, a Filipino fur in Facebook, who introduced him to the group Furrypinos.
He is one of the co-founders and organizers, as the chairman, the Philippine Anthro Festival, the first furry convention in the Philippines. After the Philippine Anthro Festival was discontinued, he lead the team who founded FurryPinas which succeeds as the official furry convention in the Philippines.
In June 2013, he founded the Furrypino Fursuiters Pack, a gathering of furries from the Philippine Furry Fandom, whom have specific interests in the art of fursuiting.
His fursona is a dragon, known as Tooth Less among his furry and non-furry friends, derived from his favorite dragon character from the Dreamworks' feature. He was suppose to use "Toothless" as his furry name but since Facebook didn't allow that name, he used "Tooth Less" as a way to bypass Facebook's security feature. In the end, he decided to officially use that name after the public got more used to using "Tooth Less" rather than "Toothless".
Furrypino Fursuiters Pack (FFP)
Tooth Less founded the Furrypino Fursuiters Pack on June 9, 2013 starting with 3 members. Due to slow growth rate of fursuiters in the country, the membership only grew from 3 to 19 in three years. However, it did not stop the group from becoming very actively involved not just in furmeets and fandom conventions but also in charities and volunteering. The FFP also started a program called "School of Fursuiting" where people can sign-up to make fursuits under the mentorship of FFP's veteran fursuit makers as one of its ways to increase its membership.

Mark 1 Fursuit
His first fursuit, built by David L. Hong (Alduin Hearth); is a dragon based on Toothless, was first completed on June 1, 2013. The head is made of foam. The frame of the wings are made of corrugated plastic with fiber glass reinforcing the joints. The tail and head are made very light weight. The whole fursuit skin is covered using a black velboa.
Mark 2 Fursuit
As of December 2012, he has been engineering his own mechatronic dragon fursuit as the second version of his fursuit.
A second prototype of his robotic tail can be found on Tooth Less's Page.
