About me

My main goal in life is to experience as much as possible. As a linguist by discipline I have encountered different cultures. As a music producer and dj my work has allowed me to follow my lifelong passion for sound. As an International Sales and Business Development Executive I've sold everything from books to Paul Smith Boutiques to million dollar mixing consoles to Luc Besson and have thoroughly enjoyed travelling the globe doing so. As a communicator I endeavour to develop cultural sensibilities that will allow me to adapt to varying situations. As a human being I'm trying to find a balance between my ego and my true self, learning to listen more and judge less. I like to think of myself as split down the middle between a rascal and a wise old owl and I'm alright with that duality.
