I come from Sweden. I keep doing what I want to do, doesn’t matter where I am but I drink coffee. I like to meet people. That’s what I do for life. I like to move around, go to new places. What I do for money for work would be also different. Working with coffee, working with good fitness, and a little bit of film and media. I like to have multiple jobs, do a lot of things, and meet a lot of people.

What I like about coffee really comes down to the people. A lot of places have food and coffee but what about the other elements around that. The people give you the experience you don’t expect. It triggers the emotional wow effects when you share your story and learn the lesson from someone that can teach you something about life.

I also start my own project called startingwith sticker where I create sticker based on the inspiration I get from drinking coffee, looking at patterns and movements. I go to a new place everyday for that.

My whole life I was thinking with one side of my brain. I think I always been creative but I was not really stimulated in that field. When I came to Bali I continuously met people on my path that put me in certain direction that I felt like I needed to explore more.

I went from a yoga teacher training to reiki energy healing to wise women retreats. Even I am not the kind of person that is super yoga. I don’t actually do yoga everyday. But Yoga was a gateway for me into that spiritual self-study and self-improvement world. Now I prefer dancing and embodied movement as a tool to more in tune with my nature.

Dancing for me is a form of meditation. I feel free when I dance. The only thing that matters is the music and your body in the movement. When you dance, you would hear a certain layer of music and you moved to that layer. Then you hit the next layer and then you started moving to that eventually your body became one with the music.

I was born and raised in Jakarta, but I had lived in Australia for 15 years and during those years I pursued tertiary education, got married and had a family in Sydney. Before moving to Bali, I moved back to my hometown, Jakarta.

In the last 14 years, we were enterpreneur, running our own wedding photography & videography. After moving to Bali, we founded I Choose Bali as we found Bali is such a unique place to attract many people from all around the world to live here. And those personal stories can be such inspirations to the world

We’ve always thought of retiring in Bali one day, as our work brought us to Bali plenty of times. The dream came true much earlier, and Bali offers much more than we expected, and now I understand why people choose to live here. It’s simple life here in Bali, it’s powerful but humble at the same time. It’s truly the best of both worlds between western & asian culture.

Bali has all the elements to support us to be productive and reach our goals, but at the same time having a meaningful and enjoyable life and still be ourselves . And I’m grateful to be here.
