Summary

Born in Jakarta, Danny spent 27 years of his life abroad mainly in Japan, Austria, and Singapore, all thanks to his nuclear scientist father who was stationed in Japan and Austria respectively. Upon graduating from National University of Singapore, he started working as an analyst in JP Morgan. Wanting to try something out of his comfort zone, he resigned and received an opportunity to work in the live entertainment industry at Resort World Sentosa where he learnt the trade of the industry. He finally decided to move back to Jakarta in late 2015 to start working on his own startup in Jakarta.

Motivation

Known by his peers as the "Happy-Go-Lucky" guy, Danny believes in making new friends regardless of age, sex, location, religion, or race. Knowing that languages may be the barrier to connect people of different cultures, it is by learning languages that eliminates such barrier. This will eventually open up vast opportunities and possibilities to all kinds of developments that one needs in life.

Biography

Despite being born in Jakarta, Danny spent his kindergarten days in Japan, and primary and secondary school in Austria. Upon obtaining his International Baccalaureate Diploma in Vienna International School, Danny decided to pursue his university education at National University of Singapore, majoring in Economics and Southeast Asian Studies. Being a curious soul since young, Danny always wanted to try different things that sometimes do not end well for himself. He joined two different sport teams, took part in short film projects, theater productions, and various other clubs and activities while in university. Even after his graduation in 2011, Danny started his first startup while he was working full time at JP Morgan and Resort World Sentosa. Albeit failing to grow his first startup as he would have expected it to be and eventually closed down the digital platform, he had learnt various important business and life lessons as an entrepreneur. In late 2015, he finally decided to come back to Jakarta after spending 27 years of his life abroad. Currently he is working his new startup, and hoping to learn and experience first hand about Indonesia and its people, culture, landscape, and food.
