About Me

Hey there! I'm Ken Aqshal Bramasta, but you can call me Ken or Bramasta. I'm a software engineer currently living in Jakarta, Indonesia 🇮🇩.

I grew up in Bekasi, West Java, just a hop, skip and a jump away from Jakarta, the most crowded city in Indonesia 🚗. I studied software engineering in vocational high school and found my passion for working on the backend. I don't have much interest in design, but I love creating high-speed and reliable services. That's why I've spent almost 90% of my career as a backend engineer✨.

Before I got into software development, my dream was to become an architect and create the tallest buildings architecture🏛, but when I couldn't get into the architecture major in vocational high school, I decided to pursue software engineering because I loved playing with computers. It wasn't until then that I realized my true passion was in software engineering, specifically in creating systems 👨‍💻

In my free time, I love being outdoors, reading comics and books, and watching movies.
