About Me




I've been busy since high school doing part time job, and barely had time to travel. In the mean time, I was active in competitive debating during college and it was the experience that taught me how to be a critical thinker. With limited experiences, I began traveling solo across Indonesia, and I just couldn't stop. I am spontaneous person with interest on foods, books and good movies. You can read what people think about me to judge whether I am good enough to surf at your place.


If you don't know where you're heading to, you can't get lost.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I came to Social Media Festival in Jakarta, and signed up the next day. Then I began hosting, surfing and had a lot of fun. I wish I did it long time ago.

Music, Movies, and Books

Too many to list, but I enjoy medieval fantasy, science fiction, and some brain teasing book. Most of all, I enjoy reading Douglas Adam's.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I just quit my job of six years to study environment in Netherlands. For me it's the most amazing thing I have done to finally do something I am passionate about.

Chasing out robbers with motorbike only to crash by bike and hit someone (unintentionally) along the way. He's alive, don't worry!

Teach, Learn, Share

I used to be a teacher for private client back then when I was in college, I can teach Bahasa Indonesia.

What I Can Share with Hosts
