Dear my valued readers,

I’m glad someone lands on my blog and reads something here. There’re things you need to know about me:

  • I like writing (bilingually, in Indonesian and English), translating (English- Indonesian), online journalism, blogging. Basically I’m a lingophile ( a person who likes languages). I plan to be a polyglot (one who speaks a lot of languages) so I can read more and write more in more languages. In case you  also provide writing service
  • If you fail to see me sitting as a wordsmith, you’re likely to find me doing yoga. I like yoga so much I took a 200-hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in 2013 and took another one with Setyo Jojo in August 2015. A month later I resigned from my corporate job and decided to teach yoga for private classes and groups right now. So if you happen to need my yoga teaching service, let me know via Twitter (@akhlis27), Facebook (Akhlis Purnomo) or shoot me an email: akhlispurnomo(at)gmail(dot)com.

But if you prefer reading my official and formal bio, here it is:

“Having been obsessed with languages since his early years, Akhlis Purnomo, S. S., M. Hum. currently works as a freelance writer and translator. As a student, he studied English Literature at Universitas Negeri Semarang (2001-2005) and Universitas Diponegoro (2006-2009). Previously he taught English Grammar and Speaking as a part-time lecturer at Universitas Muria Kudus, a private university in his hometown from 2006 to 2009. He then shifted his career, working as a business reporter cum translator at a property company (2010 – 2015), making him well versed in Business English. That said, he has 5-year experience in journalism, business and entrepreneurship web content translation. Some translation projects he has been partly involved in the background are two (2) business advice books and one (1) entrepreneurship book. He is now a full member of Himpunan Penerjemah Indonesia (HPI)— the official association of translators in the country. When he is not working with words, you can find Akhlis‎ on his mat, practicing and teaching yoga.”
