About me

I have obtained valuable experience and knowledge from every company that I have worked for. In return this allows me to not only contribute to my company’s positive reputation by being a well-rounded, sincere and friendly person, but to also have the ability to multitask, while still maintaining an emphasis on quality and attention to detail.
I am a loyal, respectful, reliable hardworking person, and I believe in being completely dedicated to producing great results in my work. I have also obtained good experience from working remotely in terms of being focused without instruction as well as having the necessary requirements to me powered during power cuts.
I was born in South Africa but I grew up in New Jersey, United States of America. I returned to South Africa approximately 15 years ago. I believe through both my work and personal life experiences; it has strengthened my character and independence and has provided me with the opportunities to continually grow throughout my career.
