Personal life[edit]

Geovedi was born in Bandarlampung, Lampung, Indonesia. After graduating high from school (1998-1999), he found himself living on the street without steady work. He later managed to teach himself computer security and programming, despite lacking formal education in the field. Media often use him as an example of how people can become successful in the IT industry by relying on their empirical knowledge and acumen, even without holding university degrees.[9][10]

He is an Arsenal fan.[11] He is also a fan of death metal and grindcore music. In an interview with Beritagar in 2013,[12] Geovedi revealed that he is a fan of Napalm Death, Brutal Truth, Cannibal Corpse and Deicide.
