I’m an independent writer and photographer based in Gorontalo, a small city in northern Sulawesi.

I cover eastern Indonesia and Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo) because there are too few reporters for the plethora of stories in this part of the country. I speak Indonesian.

I created the blog part of this site in 2015, when I was studying in Turkey, and restarted it in 2016, when I was volunteering with asylum-seekers in Greece. The first post is here. The reason for restarting and keeping it alive today it is here.

I studied history and math. More about me in the social media links above and below.
