About me

I would like to grow my career with new challenges in the media, print and digital production industry. I’m looking forward to work in a medium / large size print and media agency, expanding my role as production and facility manager, facing clients directly and advising on the best product and production process. I have a deep knowledge of organization workflows, I’m keen to direct and oversee the work of graphic and machinery operators, doing estimates and providing advise for new product development. I have been improving my technical skills and knowledge of web related design and deployment processes, to move forward my career and the company I work for, towards a multi-channel production process in both advertisement and editorial. For the last 5 years I have been the senior manager and co-owner of a medium size Advertisement and Print company (25 people ca.). I have worked as manager, coordinator and consultant in the print production industry. My approach is to ensure satisfaction from both the client’s perspective and my team’s efficiency, with a special attention to details. I am used to work in medium-large teams, scheduling tasks, overseeing the resolution of day-to-day issues and coordinating other key individuals. I have a lot of experience in customer advising, budget meeting and priorities scheduling to ensure an excellent customer experience.
