Bartender and co-founder of Pulau Projects
There is so much talent here in Bali, and we hope to showcase this through our projects.
What accomplishment are you most proud of?
I’m super proud to have been part of an amazing management team at Kynd Community in Seminyak over the last five years. It’s been really cool to be a part of the journey and see the brand become so popular and famous around the world.
However, during the pandemic, I decided to join forces with my best mate Dewa to create our own company ‘Pulau Projects’. We have spent the last year creating, building and opening some great new hospitality venues here in Bali and overseas. One of these venues is Yuki in Canggu, and I am so proud of the menu, vibe, quality and service we’ve created.
What impact have you made in Bali?
At Pulau Projects we are really focused on finding passionate local people and putting our energy into building and inspiring them to become leaders in the hospitality industry. There is so much talent here in Bali, and we hope to showcase this through our projects.
What does 2022 look like for you?
We have a busy year ahead with lots of exciting projects taking place, however, our goal is to open a place we can call our own.
What do you love most about Bali?
What’s your first and last drink of the day?
First drink is a fresh Coconut from the pasar. The last would be a Negroni after service.
Who is your Local Legend and why?
I have two. My grandma (Ninik) who is almost 90 years-old but still works so hard everyday. She is a mother of six kids, a grandmother of 14 and a great-grandmother to six more. She taught me what hard work and resilience looks like.
As for someone from the industry who inspires me, that would be Denny Bakiev. He is creative, talented and above all. He is so humble.
