I am looking for both challenging and rewarding job. I believe that I carry great enthusiasm, energy and initiative to become a great asset with the help of my educational experience and fresh vision. Working with both small and large companies of different markets and styles, has allowed me to wear many hats and take on much responsibilities beyond the call of duty.
