Bio

Even though I come from a multidisciplinary background ; my main focus is Project Management. My Geographical Information System knowledge/skills, coupled with my education in Geography gives me great spatial data abilities. The addition of an MBA to my experience will give me the ability to assess complex problems holistically and would excel my managerial abilities in order for me to find strategic solutions in challenging project environments.

I am comfortable with high profile clients and individuals as well as corporate structures. Networking and building lasting relationships come naturally. I am a good and spontaneous communicator and comfortable with public speaking. I possess leadership qualities and thrive on challenges.

My field of interest includes - Geography, Project Management, Renewable Energy, Ocean floor mapping and Environmental issues.
