Biography 

I am of an earthy creative nature. I grasp the interdependence of nature and art; a sensitive side that's complemented by my inner strength. I am a generous and moral person. I always work on self-improvement. I am ambitious and desire excellence and detail.  

Even though I work very hard, I am not in the least selfish. I work because I want to improve the world. I understand the need to make sacrifices. 

I have an unusual blend of extrovert and introvert qualities, which puts me in the perfect position of being able to associate with all kinds of people.

I am madly in love, curious and passionate about the footwear industry. I am excited to walk this path and believe that I can deliver an exciting input.

I keep the well-being of people and mother nature in mind with everything I do. I believe in creating a "one-world-family.'
