I thoroughly enjoy variety in my work environment and tend to create challenges to ensure that my own development and creative needs are met.

Integrity: I am internally motivated and set high standards of performance for myself. I am a loyal person with a firm set of values. I view myself as a humanitarian and enjoy making a difference towards issues that make an impact on society..

I gained solid experience during my working life and can make a valuable contribution to any organization.
