A: I oversee the whole operations of Clay Craft and Double Ikat Restaurants, R Bar and Pool Bar, all MICE and banquet operations and also our beach club in Pandawa, Roosterfish, which will open later this year. Ensuring all of the B&F – we call it B&F here at Renaissance – associates are taken care of and our guests are happy.
E: What makes a typical day?
A: Starting from breakfast operations to dinner, I ensure I can exchange stories with guests and assist the guests in discovering something new.
E: Your best attribute?
A: I have the passion to encourage others to grow within the hospitality industry. I want to leave memorable moments, not only with the guests that dine in our outlets, but also with all of our team.
E: Team player or team leader?
A: Both, it depends on which role the team needs you to be at any given moment – either with my B&F team, my colleagues or when I’m playing soccer.
E: Who has been the most influential figure in your career to date?
A: My father. He always tells me to finish the work that I do. You’re done when you’ve done it, not when you’re tired. Never give up on something that you love. Keep on pursuing it.

A: Going back to my roots by visiting my birthplace in West Bali, playing with the kids, walking Dino – my dog and enjoying my mom’s cooking.
E: Dead or alive, who would you like to take out to dinner?
A: Jose Mourinho, I would love to talk with him for hours about soccer and how he coaches his team.
