I believe that life is a game to be played to win with fun, variety, creativity and not too much planning or structure. I love competition and interacting with other people. I avoid boredom and routines at almost all cost. I’m a natural troubleshooter who doesn’t mind rolling up my sleeves and getting involved hands-on. I greatly value my skills, freedom, courage and high energy level. I’m ready and able to act on a moment’s notice – just watch me!

 

Workplace Environment

“I am most comfortable in a workplace that is unstructured and challenging with opportunities for advancement. I like movement and high energy. I need freedom to move ahead and get things done. I like to make things happen and take risks! I can spot problems as they arise and I am good at negotiating agreements or plans of action. I thrive on a challenge and work well under stress and give direct and straight forward answers. I’m action oriented and like my freedom from too much control.”
