PROFESSIONAL SUMMARY

I am a data specialist with around a decade of hospitality experience (in predominantly food and beverage). I relocated to London 10 months ago in the pursuit of a professional career, but have realised that my passion lies with hospitality/dining. I am efficient, enthusiastic, reliable, and passionate about advancing society. My previous work and volunteer experience have developed my skills in innovative thinking, problem solving and communication. I am well adjusted to change having lived and travelled in many countries during my childhood and my school years. This experience has also made me extremely observant and someone with the ability to communicate effectively with most anyone.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT AND TEAMWORK

Throughout my life I have been active with team/recreational sports. Whilst I was in university I rowed for junior varsity, played on multiple rec teams (soccer/dodge ball) and was an avid snowboarder, spinner and yogi throughout with some intermittent climbing. Having left school, I have also managed to pick up recreational softball and golf, and more recently surfing and skateboarding. Both of which I hope to improve with more potential surf days.

Culture has always been extremely important to me and have promoted the arts and will always be passionate about sharing life experiences with others. I have thoroughly enjoyed the amount of plays, shows, gigs and museums I have been able to view after having moved to London.

My dad works in oil and gas allowing me the privilege of growing up in places such as Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, China and of course Canada. This has made me very well adjusted to change and apt at finding my niche wherever I go, I left my life of 11 years in Canada behind in pursuit of new challenges.
