Currently residing in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

Riddled by poverty and development gap in my surroundings, I seek the answer through business sector, particularly global trade and local economy development.

Back in 2012, I joined the Center for World Trade Studies in Universitas Gadjah Mada (CWTS UGM) as research assistant. This institution has helped me to specialize my knowledge in the field of international political economy: particularly policy making, global value chain, and trade negotiation. In the same year, I also began to be involved as facilitator in local Chamber of Commerce's programs that aimed to support local SMEs. In the following year, I focused my involvement for local economy development by joining PUM Senior Netherland Expert as local representative assistant, whose tasked to facilitate communication between PUM experts and local entrepeneurs, as well as giving supplementary advice toward the consultation project.

Three years of professional experiences from institutions mentioned above has motivated me to build a trading house that connect students, entrepreneurs (SMEs) and foreign partners. This plan is still under development and expected to be started in 2017.

Beside my activities in business sector, I also involved in several social movement/enterprises; Organisasi Sosial Kau dan Aku, Darahrurat, Pengamen Bersatu, Ashoka Global Young Changemaker, IYCS, Pemerti Code and Arisan Buku.

I am more than glad to receive offers for collaboration, or a simple coffee time invitation.
