My name is Ricardo. I am originally from Italy. Throughout my life for most of the time I have been a basketball player. That’s what I have been doing for so long. Italy has been home for the majority of the time but I have been lucky enough to leave and travel. To live a little bit in the UK, Dubai and of course now in Bali.
I stopped playing basketball professionally at 22 and ended up working in finance for a year. It was going great but I was not ready to get stuck. I was looking a life with a little bit more freedom. That’s when I decided to coach CrossFit and fitness. Those are the things that I am also passionate about and I am grateful I can turn my passion into a job that can pay my lifestyle which eventually led me into Bali.
Bali has been such a big part of my life. It’s where I met my fiancé. It’s where I got engaged. It’s where I grew the most as a coach, as an athlete, and as a human being.

Our commitment to run this community is simple, that is to provide tools for each member to be able to promote their Bali stories to others. Uploading to their social media and link to their personal website so others can follow the full story. Please see here to view the benefits of membership.
This community has a sole purpose - to promote Bali, more than just a holiday island, but memorable place to live in. From the members' real stories, people can follow and witness how their life improves because of Bali. There is saying either "Bali kicks you out or she sucks you in.
This community was initially prepared for the portal for couples who looked for wedding information in Bali. However amid the pandemic, the website is then transformed into the community of online business in Bali. The goal is to assist whatever it takes for giving opportunity for every people in Bali to sell online. Besides setting up an e-commerce platform, they benefit with our video-making experience
This community is created with one mission - to promote a different value to what most people know about Bali already as a holiday island. But instead, this community empowers the stories of how people chose Bali and how they wish to inspire others to live for a better future. Thus, it invites local people or people internationally who were touched by Bali
