About the Author

Valdy Wiratama is a 20-something curious George with a penchant for cultural observation. Professionally, he is a former business analyst with a bachelor’s degree in Economics. However, he doesn’t like to label himself based on his former day job.

In his downtime, he enjoys writing Op-Ed pieces for external publications. His writings on the subject of pop culture and socioeconomic behavior have been featured on The Jakarta Post and Magdalene. Aside from writing, he likes to read coming of age stories, curate playlists, and analyze films.

Originally, this blog was made to sharpen his amateur writing skills. He divides the topics discussed on this blog into four categories; those categories are labeled as funconomics, popcorn, earworm, and miscellaneous. Funconomics covers unconventional economic materials with a millennial approach, popcorn discusses motion pictures and television series, earworm discusses current tunes and its themes, and miscellaneous is just there to ease the categorization of other topics. You can also find his published writings from other media by going to the Writing Portfolio page.
