I’m passionate about botany and I’m passionate about people.

Growing up in a farming family in a village close to Ubud, I learnt from a young age about agricultural practices and native plants – and how they are entwined with our culture.

My passion for plants led me to Udayana University in Denpasar to undertake a bachelor’s degree in botany and agriculture, and a master’s degree specialising in plant biodiversity.

Establishing Ubud Botany Interactive (UBI) in 2014 was the perfect next step for me. Bursting with knowledge about Balinese botanicals, I was keen to share my expertise and passion for plants, farming practices and Balinese culture while benefiting my community. Today UBI is blossoming into a sustainable business that supports the local economy and promotes progressive environmental practices.

I hope you’ll join me to share my passion for plants and people in Bali.
