I am available for freelance work! Get to know my skills here, and feel free to contact me when you have any questions!

Quick background story:

1I was born

on November,12 1987 in Tulungagung, East Java - Indonesia. It's an extremely small village that I wouldn't be surprised if it's excluded on the map. Anyway, my parents moved to Surabaya since I was an infant. That's where I lived till I was about 17 yo.

2When I was 17

I was lucky enough to get a scholarship & moved to the Netherlands. Not that simple tho, lots of drama involved - mom cried like I was dead. Oh anyway - I buried my dream to study in Canada since (darn you destiny!)

Not true, I am still considering to do that sometime in the future actually.. You never know, I might win a lottery or something...

3And then I was 20

/* Quick hint: College was boring as fuck */

I moved to California (OC - LA) - started as an intern at Subset M (New media marketing company in Entertainment business). 6 months passed & they hired me (woott!). I met cool friends as well as cool artists there - went to Grammy Nomination for free with Cari Reed (also known as Mrs. Mraz) :D

2 things I remember:

  • John Mayer's hot - he's my future husband, I'm telling you.
  • Jonas Brothers were lame as fuck. They acted too cute, made me wanna puch'em in the face.

4Kaboom! back to the Netherlands
