I am a hard-working, motivated professional with loads of initiative and enthusiasm. My background in mechanical engineering gives me an insider’s perspective when it comes to engineering-related industries, and my business development experience has given me extensive experience in facilitating B2B relationships.

Thriving in a fast-paced environment, I am a strong negotiator and networker, and very much a ’big picture’, strategic thinker. Above all, I am looking for a stimulating position in an energetic and supportive team where I can continue to make a transition from engineering to a strategic business development role.
