About me

I am a courteous, polite and well-spoken person, who posesses a great team spirit and outstanding passion in providing highest standards of hospitality and services to the guests.

Coming from a sports background, that gave me the education of a team player and taught me to respect others and their abilities in different fields.

Keen on understanding peoples needs, solving problems and quick researcher to deliver alternatives.

I see myself as a world explorer who loves to connect with different cultures and learn how unique this world can be.

I am an adventurous person so I am always looking for new things to do and discover new places.
