Creative problem solver with a joyful multidisciplinary approach to design and production. 
Curious, optimistic and non-traditional thinker. Natural leader and proactive team member with great respect for quality, exploration, execution and deadlines.

With extensive multi-disciplinary experience, auto-didactic abilities, greet and passion I am confident every task I will take upon myself will be executed to the highest level and beyond expectation. New and unfamiliar issues calling for creative solutions are my play-field. If required - new knowledge and skills will be acquired as well as cooperation will be formed, all for the cause of efficient, creative, edgy and on-time delivery of solutions and productions.         

Ecologically oriented.
