About me

I am a self-motivated enthusiastic individual willing to engage in any task with a positive, proactive attitude. I am constantly striving to develop new skills and I have a passion for learning and travel. I have lived abroad on long-term placements, and I am always looking for new ways to widen my experience and knowledge base. As a creative and innovative thinker, I have strong sense of initiative and can problem solve independently and efficiently, but I also thrive in the diversity of a team.
