About Me

Started my journey in June 2014. Travelled in USA and South America for 9 months, the switched to South Asia for 2 months. It has been 11 months since I started my backpacking trip.

I was born and raised in Indonesia. For the past 6 years, I have been moving around and have lived in 4 different countries. Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and The US.

I am an Industrial / Product Designer, I believe designers are essentially story tellers. To tell great stories, I listen to great stories first. I learn by listening and understand by doing.

Passionate about design, human interaction and reaction. I enjoy creating objects, I appreciate aesthetics, I see beauty in functions, and I believe in the idea of "The right place, the right time, and the right people".

Born and raised in Indonesia, I started my design endeavor in 2006 by enrolling to a Design School in Malaysia. Prior to graduation, I joined several design studios in Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore as an Industrial Design Trainee. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Product Design from Curtin University of Technology in summer 2010, and I landed my first full time job in Singapore as an Industrial Designer.

Throughout the past few years, I have enhanced my skills in Industrial Design through my involvement in various projects in several design companies in 4 different countries, including working remotely during my travel. These projects range from consumer electronics, kitchenware, medical devices, to game controllers.
