I am a Bali-based Environmental Engineer, curator and interpreter. Welcome to my archives.

I am currently Director of Bali Eco Tours, our family enterprise where I am strengthening our green credentials in three areas: educating our guests about Bali's challenges with climate change, reducing the carbon footprint of our operations by developing more local tours to reduce time spent in a motorized vehicle, and implementing solutions to reduce dependence on water bottles while still providing hygienic potable water to our team, our guests, and the communities we work in.

Having worked with Alila Manggis and Alila Ubud in improving their environmental stewardship in 2009 - 2011, I had the pleasure of being General Manager at Lakeview Ecolodge for 5 years (2011-2016). At these resorts, I focused my energy on training management and staff, selecting a green team to be in charge of reducing each resort's ecological footprint. Key issues include energy efficiency, water conservation and groundwater recharge, as well as coastal protection & rehabilitation.

After participating in eleven literary festivals (Ubud Writers & Readers Festival 2004-2009, Utan Kayu Literary Biennale 2007 & 2009, Kuala Lumpur Literary Festival 2007, Singapore Writers Festival 2008 and the Northern Territory's WordStorm 2010) in the capacity of volunteer, translator, interpreter, MC, cultural liaison, guide, organizer, curator, moderator and guest speaker, I took a break. This gave me the much needed space and perspective to curate the Amsterdam Read My World festival of documentary literature in 2015.

On the visual arts front, I am currently exploring visual archives of Bali prior to Dutch occupation and independence. The last two exhibitions I curated was mateReality by Anusapati and the Komunitas Lempuyang group exhibition entitled KayunAti (HeartSpirit).
