I truly believe that I am of those ones, passionate, flexible, motivate, problem solver, multi venue, I’m a person which enjoys by working in dynamical and challenging environments. Strongly oriented toward the Luxury Hospitality Industry with the main goal to obtain a secure and rewarding position in a people-oriented organization within a supportive and learning environment.
