E: Describe your typical day in a sentence.

A: On a typical day you’ll find me in my kitchen rolling around with those dry-aged meats, running the restaurant on a daily basis and searching for new experiences in the culinary world.

E: How did you come to be a chef at The Langham, Jakarta?

A: I noticed this District 8 Project a long time ago, and knew
The Langham, Jakarta would open together with Tom’s by Tom Aikens. 
I was keen to be part of this new exciting journey for my career.

E: What’s the favourite part of your job?

A: I love everything about food. I love the process of sourcing, preparing, cooking and serving it. So, the best part is I don’t feel like I’m working, because I do the job that I love.

E: How do you unwind?

A: During my spare time I usually do some sporting activities with my relatives, travel to find exciting culinary journeys and spend some time with my automotive collections.

E: Name one really special thing about your hotel.

in Indonesia.
