Founder & Chief Executive Officer
I'm a Digital Nomad currently living in Kuala Lumpur. Co-Founder and CEO of PeepSo.com. First time WordCamp Speaker at WordCamp Kuala Lumpur in 2017 hoping to speak more soon.
I started my journey with open source nearly a decade ago as a simple support guy. Joomla! was my first encounter with the world of Open Source. After that period of my life got phased out I fell in love with WordPress and never left. I have been both lucky and at the same time I worked my ass off to get to where I am right now.
Free time, if I have any, is usually spent with my girlfriend and / or travelling around South-East Asia. Even when I'm supposed to be on a little vacation, not a day goes by when I don't check up on PeepSo 😉
So far visited or lived in: Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, China and more...
Founder & Chief Technology Officer
I am a professional nerd with over a decade of experience in the field of Open Source web development. Before PeepSo I was a contractor and have helped build successful businesses around the world, including USA, UK, Germany, Malaysia and Indonesia.
Stepping up from the role of contractor to business owner, I became PeepSo founder and Chief Technology Officer. I strive to build beautiful, fast and functional software that empowers the users to build their own digital tribes with full autonomy and freedom often not available on the mainstream social networking media.
As a location independent digital nomad I travel almost constantly, although over the past four years I have spent most of my time in Bali, Indonesia.
When not in front of my laptop I usually have fun with my beautiful fiancée Olivia: traveling, riding motorbikes, trying new foods and doing (acro)yoga.
I am a graphic designer, turned school teacher, turned yoga instructor and business owner. Strategizing, managing, effectively communicating and problem-solving have been my tasks and goals in the past years. I am a people person. I enjoy connecting, networking, and achieving personal as well as company-set goals. I thrive on efficiency and creativity rules my life.
Throughout my 8-year journey living in Asia, I’ve evolved from a teaching career to Marketing and Digital services management, leading and growing kick-ass teams.
In my spare time, I have fun growing my own startup business - an online yoga platform aimed to help people awaken and rock their greatest life in body, mind and relationships through Yoga, Tantra and Meditation practices.
At PeepSo, I developed the user interface behavior of our plugins. I make sure everything is well integrated in the WordPress environment which is shared with many other plugins and themes. Bug fixes and improvements are my priorities as we listen to our users' suggestions. There is still plenty of room for us to grow and I am happy to assist in PeepSo's evolution.
When I'm not coding or learning about new web development trends, I spend my time with my wife and son. I also bike or play futsal on weekends.
Bagus Pribadi Setiawan
I am a backend developer with over a decade of experience in the field of Web Development. I am currently based in Badung, Indonesia. I have my degree in Informatics Engineering from the Indonesian Computer University.
I started my journey in Technical Support. I was initially in charge of deployment and managing servers at my previous company. After a year, I grew fond of web development and started to learn more about it.
In March 2016, I joined PeepSo as their Backend Developer and started to contribute in the creation of new PeepSo plugins. I am also part of PeepSo's Support Team - happy to assist and cater to our customer's needs and concerns.
In my spare time, I love spending time with my wife and son, enjoying peaceful family time.
Gen Gen Fikri Adam
I am a software enthusiast who loves learning new technology, loves solving problems, and loves writing thousand lines of code. I spent over six years in the corporate world as a web developer. I felt officially stuck there so I decided to leave and join the PeepSo team. I love what I do and have more freedom.
I create automation scripts for PeepSo, making sure every single feature operates to perfection before every new version is released.
In my spare time, I play football, ride my motorbike, spend quality time with friends or just enjoy a good sleep-in on the weekends.
DevOps & Security

Brad is so excited the new Social Networking plugin PeepSo is now available for the WordPress community to use and enjoy to build their own communities.
