Originally from Jakarta, Indonesia, I moved to South Africa over 5 years ago after living on the Bali Island for a number of years.

Travelling is one of my favourite hobbies because it has allowed me to see the world, experience other people's way of life and culture and, I have found travelling to put things into perspective.

I am one of the tour operators at the South African Tourism Company and look forward to being of assistance.

I was born and raised in Bloemfontein, but have since moved to Cape Town and am proud to call Cape Town my home. I have been working with South African Tourism Company for 2 years and I am loving it. 

My goal is to make my clients happy and to give them the best experience when they go on holiday. I love nature and, if I could, I would travel to each destination that we have to offer. 

The tour I love the most will have to be the Garden Route. My favourite safari destination would definitely have to be the Kruger Park. And, my favourite city is Cape Town.
