About the Founder

Hi, I’m Helmi, the founder & editor for the Balkoni Hijau blog & host for the YouTube channel.

I originated from Kajang, Malaysia. I studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin Madison, USA for 4 years and got my first job as a Design Engineer in the Oil & Gas industry in Singapore.

Unfortunately in 2014 due to the global oil crisis, I was laid off, twice. This blog started as a writing hobby that slowly turned into a source of online income & also got me into tech startup marketing jobs.
