About me

I've always been thinking that no matter your background, wether graduations or experiences, if you got the gutts to do something or to go somewhere, you gotta reach it one way or another. It's all about having the right attitude, believe in yourself but being humble enough not to rest on your laurels, showing out that you're capable and always asking and listening yourself on what's your purpose. That's what i truly believe in.

Young man optimistic, positive whom always tries to light up the place he gets in.
Hard worker with the right attitude, i always try to level me up.
An asset for Hospitality jobs regarding to the customers, interactions among Hotel branch and the ability to get along with co-workers that make a team work.

Passionate of travel, fashion and the chase of new adventures as well.
Challenging myself and getting where i’m unexpected is my motto.

    Opening of a fine dining & mediterranean restaurant near Nice, got the 1rst ranking position on TripAdvisor after 5 months of activity. I'd been lucky enough that i've learnt most of the knowledge i got right now thanks to a talented chef that took on this time to train me. I was basically running the place with the co owner, the whole restaurant set up included cleaning tasks, and working as a chef de rank while on duty. Starting byy own and ending up by managing 3 English staff at the end. Back of house too : polishing, linen, closing... Had a blast putting my words on the promotion of the establishment (news papers, vouchers, ads...)
