About me

In more than 13 years working overseas I have gained significant experience in audiovisual production and particularly in TVC advertising production, giving me the opportunity to collaborate with internationally renowned agencies and directors. Through my work I have developed advanced commercial skills, techniques and tools in the area of project management. On a commercial level I have acquired highly effective skills in representation and negotiation that helped me in establishing relationships with clients and in developing worldwide partnerships and business opportunities. My knowledge gained in project management has made me possess advanced analytical skills and pay precise attention to detail. It also made me extremely organized in terms of: work and prioritizing effectively across a number of projects; human and technical resources; optimizing costs and times, keeping to even the tightest budgets and always ensuring a high quality end result. My work experience has allowed me to establish a level of professionalism characterized by strong problem-sitting and solving ability through application of lateral and creative thinking; quick and independent decision making and the ability to maintain a high standard of performance whilst under pressure. I have a confident personality with positive attitude and a natural propensity to working as a team. Holding leadership positions has taught me to recognize the value of others, delegating and bringing out their skills and motivating the team.
