Cypress, CA, US



I am a recent graduate from California State University Long Beach with a BFA in Interior Architecture Design. I was born and raised in Jakarta, Indonesia and moved to the US about six years ago. Having travelled and lived in two very different parts of the world has taught me to be adaptive, open minded and cherish every moment that I get to experience. 

My career goal is to use both design and music as tool to make a positive impact to the world. I feel that with so little, the world of art could do so much to transform or create an impact on a person, space, or community.
