Hello my name is Alf. My interest in Indonesia began when I moved to Jakarta at age 13 after my mother accepted a job there. I thoroughly enjoyed growing up in Indonesia’s capital. School trips to places like Tanjung Lesung, Pulau Pramuka and Yogyakarta sparked my fascination towards Indonesia.
Since graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce (Finance) from the ANU in 2014, I’ve worked at the Commonwealth Bank in a Financial Advice role, and more recently at KPMG as a Consultant in their Technology Advisory in Sydney.
I’ve taken a few months off from KPMG to work on a website in Indonesia. The site focuses on spreading “Indonesia-related content worth sharing”, covering Travel, Entertainment, History and the Environment. The team is comprised of 2 Indonesians and 2 foreigners, with a main strategic goal to soon have more Indonesians to joining the team.
