__PROFILE____________________________________________ _ _ _
• Great depth of personality
• Profound way of thinking
• Easily inspired & self-motivated
• High level of empathy
I live in the world of ideas and strategic planning. I value intelligence, knowledge, and competence, and typically have high standards in these regards, which I continuously strive to fulfill. I believe in constant growth and self-renewal. My passion is human behavior. I own strong desire to contribute to the welfare of others while pointing out human potentials. I am at my best in situations related with creativity, user insight, future concepts and strategies. I am keen to solve complex problems, where I can use my insight and experience as an industrial designer. Depending on the scale of the task, I work alone or together with other specialists, who I share similar mindset with. I put all my passion, heart and brain into the task and go the extra mile to achieve results of world class quality. I never give up until the goal is reached.
Principles that I find important:
• know yourself and people around you
• believe in what you do
• trust your intuition
• give always your best whatever you do
• find people who are better than you
