“We are the music makers, the dreamers of dreams.” – Roald Dahl

Although I pursued an academic rather than creative path in school, I have always been fascinated by the patterns that occur in art, music and the natural world. Over my two years involved in Yogyakarta’s art scene, I’ve worked with so many talented artist, both loal and international, and learned so much, mostly in the management/organization part of the art. Having studied communication and journalism in top university in Indonesia, I have a strong communication and management skills. I love working with people and learning new culture. As a person who has big interest in language, I speak English fluently, also a little bit of Italian and German. In my spare time, I’m an avid home-cook, an amateur musician and a movie buff.
