Hello, my name is Olen. I’m a Creative Director & Entrepreneur with 10 years of experience in branding, integrated marketing and advertising. I currently build iconic brands and make award-winning ads with some of the brightest, boldest, most-talented people in the creative industry at Ogilvy Chicago.

Born and raised in Indonesia, I draw my biggest inspiration from nature, culture, and people. In May 2018, I co-founded Minum Selections, a distribution company with a focus on Natural Wines. To us, this means wines that can connect anyone to a sense of time and place. Our wines are made with organic and sustainable grapes with minimal intervention in the cellar.
