About me

I love people. They are the most important energizing factor of my life.

I have a good relationship with myself and with others, because I'm sensitive and I have accurate skills in detecting intentions, states of minds and emotions.

Usually I incorporate quickly non- verbal communications from others, as well as I'm aware of how to use my non-verbal and verbal skills to communicate efficiently.

I'm especially prone to contribute continuously to improving environments: professionally and personally. I'm a creative person that has the good habit of "Looking at the Sun", that is, I focus my attention and energy in the things that can be done and in the paths that can be built.

I'm quite experienced in several ways to inspiring people, as well as in helping them to find a constructive way to integrate their own experiences.

I appreciate the value of autonomy, which is the reason I incentive other people to express themselves entirely, and help them making efforts to integrate their visions to the benefit of a team, organization or company.

I've the need to evolve continuously, and I enjoy seeing the people to whom I'm related in the same wave length, and who know the importance of having an inspirational horizon.
