About Me

/Who Am I

I am highly motivated individual looking always looking for a new challenge. With excellent communication and organizational skills I have the ability to work alone, achieve results and can adapt to teamwork with great ease. I am at my very best at data research and analysis, although I have extended knowledge in several other areas. I have the most fun when optimizing and automating business processes, saving companies and individuals lots of manual working hours.

My proudest moment was when I got married and when my son and daughter were born. I am passionate about sports, especially tennis, and volleyball, beach-volleyball, soccer and skiing as well. The most important thing about life is being in control of your life and to do what you love and I am trying to follow it as much as possible.

I prefer (but am not limited to) a work-at-home job with flexible working hours, which allow me to combine professional career with family requirements. With my broad range of skills I might be a perfect match  mostly for small to mid-sized businesses. I am looking forward to communicate with you further about possible projects/employment in case you might consider me as a value added asset to your company.

Challenges is what makes life interesting and

overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.
