Uti is an entertainment lawyer, licensed barrister, and a 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’.
Uti was born in Palembang, Indonesia, 1989. Now she lives in Jakarta. She got her law degree from a prestigious Indonesian public university. In 2014, Uti co-founded Klikonsul, an 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 favorite genre is science fiction and fantasy. Thus her favorite 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.
