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.
I am currently serving as the Vice-President of the Malaysia Specialty Coffee Association (MSCA) and as a certified judge with the World Coffee Events. 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.
