About me

I consider myself a person who is always ready to face a new challenge. Throughout my professional career I have been improving and joining new skills which allow me to know how to perform in any hotel in the world and how to lead it to success.
Right now I am in search of a new international destination where I can add more experience to my career and in return give my talent and experience to a new chain.
