Summary

I think you are good at what you believe in! And I have always worked in this way!

My passion for interpersonal communication and creative thinking have accompanied me through my whole career path. Starting as an editor and writer, I profiled myself as a full multimedia journalist, later getting involved into broadcasting and public speaking.

While still searching for more creativity in my work, I stepped into PR and marketing field to broaden my communication and business thinking skills and knowledge. After traveling Europe and getting international experience I got the opportunity to work in Asia, in a third world country - Sri Lanka. It was a big challenge for me. And I passed! After successful completion of my job experience on the Eco project, I realized it's time to try to do things in my own way and so I have started to explore the nature of entrepreneurship by getting involved into various projects and start-ups.

And here I am, a communication specialist with wide entrepreneurial experience, searching for a new challenge job to use my potential fully and become a part of a successful team.
