Always looking to challenge and excel myself, I am now actively searching and applying for new opportunities within the luxury and hospitality industry. After extensive and immersive studies, internships and working experiences, I am now looking to find a new luxury & hospitality related company/brand/family/team. To ingulf myself and assist in the development and success of a new company/brand/family/team by sharing, adding and gaining previous experiences and knowledge by always striving for learning and perfection.

Within the next 10 years, I see myself developing within the hospitality field, preferably incorporating hotels, design and retailing, and advancing through the hierarchy to a higher management position, supporting and supervising an own department/boutique while continuing my studies within the fields of change management, business psychology and design and architecture. I will as now, always strive for development with both practical and theoretical practices, experiences and studies.
