About me

Hi everybody!

I am an energetic, ambitious and creative person who has developed a mature and responsible approach to any task that has been presented to me during my international experiences.
I am looking for a challenging, fast-paced environment to utilize and develop my creative skill set further.
My life guidelines are based on Trust, Respect and Teamwork.
Being available to provide solutions is something that I love, because is useful for me to find new ways of thinking.
I am passionate for everything new and out of my knowledge: it's always a good moment to start learning!
Last, but not least, I always find a way to motivate myself with quotes from movies, books, etc.
That's one of my favorite: " Be the change you want to see in the world ".
