I'm a researcher at one of think-tank in Jakarta, Indonesia. I have a big interest and curiosity in peace and conflict resolution and also international relations issues.

I love everything about Indonesian culture and its unique artwork. It brought me to start a clothing line, named "Botjah" in 2014. All of its clothes made using Indonesian traditional fabric in modern twist. In 2016, I start another business project named "Maetala Project". Here, me and my team produce wooden watch made from Indonesian authentic wood combined with tenun ikat at the strap.

I found running and sipping coffee are very therapeutic. That's why I put those as my favorite activities. I'm a road runner who love to do group run with my running buddies and have a fun chit chat after that. On other day, I'm someone who prefer to sit alone in a silent corner, read a fiction book and sip a glass of Indonesian fine coffee.

One of my life goal is to be useful for others, especially those in need. That's why I really enjoy to join volunteering in social movements. Sharing what I have to others is one of real happiness in life. By giving, I feel like helping myself.

I've been living in different types of world and never refuse to explore more. This world is too huge to just stay in a nutshell.

I love to learn, I learn to share, I share because I care.
