Elang was born and raised in Sibolga, Indonesia. After graduating high-school, he spent several years working as a laborer on a kratom farm near his family home.
Elang sees kratom as the future as more people turn away from prescription medications and back to nature. He’s currently completing a Bachelor’s degree in horticulture in San Diego, California.
He plans to go back to Indonesia to start a farm of his own when he’s finished his studies.
Elang serves on our Kratom Review Board and provides his experience and expertise in kratom cultivation and horticulture on our editorial team as a professional fact-checker.
