Working in coffee since 2005, I started my career in the industry as a sales representative at Dankoff Coffee Specialist in Malaysia. Growing to a more senior role in the organization - I took on the role of training and development in 2015. We successfully established the DC Academy, which is the training arm that offers Specialty Coffee Association courses, workshops and other professional certifications.

I am a CQI Licensed Q-Grader and Authorised SCA Trainer for Intro to Coffee, Barista Skills, Roasting, Brewing & Sensory Skills modules under the Coffee Skills Program with SCA. I am also an Authorised Trainer and Committee Member for the ASEAN Coffee Federation.

Since 2015, I am a member of Malaysia Specialty Coffee Association (MSCA) and hold a position as Vice President (2020-2022).

I am seasoned judge of local and international coffee championships and I enjoy bringing these experiences to my trainings to continuously improve the quality for students. In 2017, I was a certified judge with the World Coffee Events, and is one of the Malaysian Technical Judge in World Latte Art Championship at Budapest in Final Team.
