Being multidisciplinary means you get to choose which 
discipline you love most.
Being interdisciplinary means you get to be better ⚡️ at it too.

At the end of the day, my interdisciplines are driven by the written word.

Adjacent disciplines and qualifications span visual and service design, film, yoga, liberal arts, editorial strategy and management, digital production, brand and cultural strategy, and content strategy (the end-to-end kind that deals with the content you see—like an ad campaign video, and the content you don't—such as metadata and information architecture).

I have lived / worked in Montreal, Bandung, Jakarta, Bangkok, Jogjakarta, Bali, Hanoi, Melbourne, Tokyo and Singapore. And so, I speak fluent English, Indonesian and French; and not-so-fluent Mandarin Chinese.

Being multidisciplinary / multicultural has wired my brain to unpack contexts, analyse patterns, and translate ideas – all pretty useful functions for a creative who turns insight into strategy; and never without a damn good story.

Learnings, or stuff I wish I’d known ten years ago:


I only started working – like, really, truly working – when I became a mom.


If there’s only one thing you master in life, make it a liberal arts education.


Routine makes me healthy.


But spontaneity makes me feel alive.


We should all be feminists. Better yet, we should all be Gay feminists living in beguinages.


I am a rebel. It’s official; Gretchen Rubin told me so.


Apologising is one of the hardest things to do. I’m still learning how to do it right, but Amy Poehler’s two comparative apology letters have inspired my intent to be able to say sorry in an honest, human way.


Shitty life situations are just bad UX. They can be redesigned.


I escaped “the office” and became a freelancer because I wanted to be “free”. I didn’t know then that freedom meant working ungodly hours, spending 60% of my day writing emails, being an accountant-slash-project manager-slash-studio manager-slash-business development manager-slash-web designer-slash-debt collector in one, juggling various unruly clients, spending my week in meetings, and then still finding time to actually work. I know better now. I wouldn’t trade it all for a damn thing.


I learn something new everyday. (Watch this space.)
