“I was born in Batam, Riau Archipelago, Indonesia. I think that what brought me to cooking is my love for art. It’s where I apply my artistic soul. My mother also loves to cook and she supports my passion.

I think that what keeps me going in the kitchen is that I don’t feel like I’m working when I am. In this career, one of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned is time management and discipline.

Something special that I’d like to say is that it’s beautiful if what we make is liked by many people. Because it’s serious.”
