I am from the United States and have been living in Finland for five years. I am a hard worker and will do what it takes to get the job done. I am quite active in both my professional and personal life.  I am a fast learner and willing to take on a challenge. I cannot speak Finnish very well, but I understand a lot more than I can speak. I have studied Finnish in school and I still study on my own in order to become more fluent in my Finnish skills. I am interested in technology and like personal devices (computers, tablets, and smart phones). I am really interested in how technology and innovation can be used to enrich our daily lives.   I enjoy traveling to different places and learning about new cultures. I have lived in Japan for over two years and I have done a lot of traveling in different parts of Asia. I have travelled in the north, south, east, and western parts of the United States. I still would like to see a lot more of the world.

Flight Equipment Technician

United States Marine Corps (Department of the Navy)

In June I started my basic training which was eleven weeks long. This is where I started to learn about leadership. We had many courses each week learning about leadership. Also learning about being a leader first hand everyday during training. After I graduated from basic training I was then sent to do my combat training which was twenty-one days long.

The next stage of my military career was Flight Equipment Technician school in Pensacola, Florida. I was there for six months. Three months was waiting for my class to pick-up and the other three months was the actual schooling. I learned how to pack parachutes, life-preservers, life-rafts, etc. I graduated with high marks in my courses.

After graduation I then was stationed in Okinawa, Japan for the next two years and two months. I took leadership courses and Lance corporals course. I have taken a Six Sigma course while in Japan as well. I was a mentor to some of the more junior Marines. I was also the safety representative alternate. After my tour in Japan was over I was stationed in Jacksonville, North Carolina. I was only there for ten months before getting a Honorable Discharge.

International Business

Kymenlaakson ammattikorkeakoulu

Did not finish the degree programme because of switching schools to Metropolia. The reason for switching schools was because of the location was much closer to where I live.



Finnish Language

I am studying Finnish in my spare time. I have taken Suomi 1 through Suomi 6 and have taken a spoken Finnish course for beginners. I understand more Finnish than I can speak. I continue to study Finnish so that I would be able to speak Finnish more fluently. 

English Language

I am a native English Speaker.

Social Skills

I get along with people easily and I enjoy working with different types of personalities. It is extremely rare that I meet a person that I don't get along with. Even in these cases I can still work with them with ease and efficiency.

IT Skills

I have used Mircrosoft Office(Word, Excel, and PowerPoint) both in my studies and in my professional life. I am familiar with the Apple operating system and Linux.
