CV / RESUMÉ

Summary

I'm a McGill Civil Engineering graduate working as a data analyst. Born in Holland, grown up in Switzerland and lived for some years in Lebanon I've been attached to different projects around the world. I'm well adaptable to new environments and enjoy places where quick thinking and resourcefulness are your best skills to use. As such I'm fast at learning and I'm always looking out for a new dynamic innovative environment to share and build ideas. I'm a big believer in that all it takes to solve a problem is a little time, a lot of coffee and an overwhelming desire to get work done.
