An entertainment lawyer, licensed barrister, and writer. As a creative writer, she writes under the pen name utiuts. The nickname ‘Uts’ was bestowed by her friends who thought it was one syllable shorter than ‘Uti’. She got her law degree from a prestigious Indonesian public university. In 2014, Uti co-founded Klikonsul, entertainment law and business firm. Currently, she is the Head of Legal and Intellectual Property of a film corporation group.

Apparently, she doesn’t think she’s busy enough, because she also writes fiction and plans to publish more in the upcoming years. Her favourite genre is science fiction and fantasy. Thus her favourite works are obvious: among others, A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle, Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson, and Sandman by Neil Gaiman. She also really, really, really likes SHINee. Additionally, Uti is on the internet a lot. She tries not to claim herself a geek, but she can’t deny she’s emotionally invested in a lot of fandoms. She likes to think she’s technology-savvy due to her more-than-average Google skill and prolific tweeting. Uti hasn’t smoked since the pandemic began.1
