I’m a Jakarta-based writer. I’ve written several screenplays for feature films, and TV series. My filmmaking portfolio can be seen here. I also write for several publications including The Jakarta Globe, ELLE (Indonesia), and FRV Travel. I co-write several books. These days, I am writing my first independent novel.

Meanwhile, I am also very much into coffee. I was one of the Visual Judges for Indonesia Latte Art Championship 2014, and Sensory Judges for Indonesia Barista Championship 2014. I am currently training myself to become a brewer. I occasionally brew coffee in ABCD.

Sometimes I help brands and products to run campaigns on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and other social media platforms. I can be reached in
