• SUMMARY

    Currently passionate about this non-profit that I started with my cousin in Portugal to help people on third world countries.

    We applied for an international competition financed by the Gulbenkian Foundation and got a place between the 10 finalists. This is our project presentation: "O Valor do Dinheiro". It will be in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese. If you click on the second picture you will get our project and our team.

    We received an honored mention by the President of Portugal.

     

     

    My first paying job was cleaning cow dung and many other functions on a farm in rural Agiez, Switzerland. Being up before sunrise for the milking instilled the work ethic I will hold for the rest of my life. Mr Petterman was 83 years old and my first mentor. If you are expecting an informational mentioning how great I am, sorry, not happening here. Ex bosses, colleagues and customers say it much better than I. Please check the recommendations bellow.
