I was born in Surabaya, Indonesia and was there until I graduated high school. I moved to Depok, Indonesia to have my Bachelor's Degree in Universitas Indonesia majoring in Computer Science.
Upon graduating, I had a job as a Software Engineer for two whole years before fulfilling my curiosity and taking up a challenge to do Master's Degree in Delft University of Technologies, Netherland in Computer Science, Software Technology Track.
My main interest is in the field of Cryptography, Privacy Enhancing Technologies, Software Engineering, and Quantum Information.
I am currently working as a Software Engineer in Automattic, a fully distributed company behind WordPress.com, WooCommerce, Tumblr, and more. In my spare time, I usually enjoy myself strolling around in a new city, taking random pictures, sometimes reading off-the-shelf books and playing games.

God does not play dice.
Every generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it, and wiser than the one that comes after it.
If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.
