* Recently began to learn Mandarin.

In my early career years, I worked as a system development and business intelligence consultant. Soon after, took the challenge of growing as a business developer manager in the IT staffing and outsourcing world. Got to learn that the biggest challenge does not lie in resources or technology, but on how we work and relate with others and, most of all, on how well we know ourselves, how clear we set our goals and how true we are with ourselves. Will always keep following what drives me, try to discover the meaning on what I do and to find that sweet spot where I can be happy doing what I enjoy the most.
