About Me
Experienced professional with background in global logistics, business development and commercial aviation.

My diverse background is my greatest strength - having distinct career paths (Airline pilot & M.Sc. Industrial Mgmt.) has given me a unique combination of professional skills and perspective;

▸ As a pilot, I've gained the ability to solve problems quickly, as well as capacity to perform under pressure.

▸ Working for global logistics companies has made me goal oriented and taught me to operate in diverse teams.

▸ Entrepreneurship has given me deeper understanding of business management and development.

When I'm not flying or improving business processes, I'm most likely playing football with some friends, trying to master "Sultans of Swing" on guitar, or experimenting with new recipes in my kitchen.

I'm always open for new opportunities, so please don't hesitate to contact me!
