I was actually looking to work in Bangkok. I was looking for a restaurant manager or hotel manager there. Then a friend of mine who is a chef was working in double sic plantation grill emailed me on Facebook and offered me a job opportunity there. I accepted it, loved it, loved the restaurant, loved the team, loved the gm and signed the contract straight away. It was very easy and quick.

There are plenty reasons why I love working in hospitality. But it really comes down to my love in food, cooking, wine, the wine and restaurant culture. I love to see restaurant that is full of people which everyone is having a great time, enjoying thear meals, laughing, chatting, and spending money of course. To me, restaurants are for celebrations, it’s a time to get together and have a good time.

I’m very grateful that I have a chance to stay and work in this beautiful island. The food on the island is world class truly. It’s mind-blowing how competitive the island is. There are high-end restaurants, the middle end, and of course the warungs. All of them serve the best food.

My name is Tyler Farnham. I grew up in Cocoa beach, Florida. My dad started pushing me into the waves when I was three years old. That’s when I started to have this feeling of adrenaline and endorphins of doing something that was fun and active as a little child. I grew up surfing and of course skateboarding followed after that. When I got a bit older I started to do skydiving and it also became another big passion in my life.

My life was really nice back then. I had this really cool active lifestyle. I began lifeguarding and had a really nice girlfriend but it turned around so quick. I experienced a fatal accident during skydiving. I had five days in a medical induced coma. While I was in the middle of recovering from this horrible accident, the girl that I loved left me. During that time I became dependent on the medication and I found myself very depressed. That’s when I decided to leave the US to feel better about myself again. I have been outside for a while now and I wrote books based on my story.

I’m fitness teacher and Jiu-Jitsu teacher. I am from Brazil. I love Bali since the first time I came here in 1998. I always dream about come to live here and when I get the opportunity to work here, I came in straight away and I am so happy I made that decision in my life.

I love sports since I was a kid. I always wanted to work with something I really like. Because if you work with something you like, it would be easier and life would be better. You would not have a problem when you got to go to work because it would be a pleasure to work. Like me, I love what I do and I love sports. Sometimes I make confusion because my job and my hobby is the same.

My job is blessed job. I make good for another person with my job. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gives them confidence. Because they know how to defend themselves. After that the world would be easier for them. They are confidence to talk with anyone or go to any place.

Previously, I was working as an engineer. Back then I also had my freelance work as a writer. At one moment, I realized it’s too much work and I had to choose. It was really hard for me to choose between a stable job or a passion work as a writer. But then I decided to took the risk, quit my job as an engineer to travel to Asia and do some writing.

Just because I took the risk and did the things I was afraid for, now I am not holding my back to do those things. Even it doesn’t look stable, but it gives me so much happiness and joy. I do a lot of things that I want to do. Not only writing, I also do marketing, painting and bunch other stuff in this magical island.

This island is really magical. She can feel if you really wanted to stay here. She will give you a lot of challenges to teach you a lot of things. Once you accepted it, she will give you everything you ever needed.
