Passion and positivity are contagious, and I bring them to everything I do. My personal strengths are my enthusiasm, that allows me to engage my partners, my curiosity that had pushed me to worn different hats and to dedicate myself to thrive in every role & my creativity that I use in solving problems, in building happy relationships, in proposing new ideas or in my spare time when I try to build my own furniture, decorate home, paint my paintings. What am I looking for? A nourishing environment & people that appreciate my “multiple” professional personality. What will I give you in return? All my best, my enthusiasm, my self-motivation & pro-active attitude, my strengths and my various skills!
