Professional Experience:
I have a combined international, public, private, non-profit, and academic outlook. I am a committed professional with experience as a general manager, directing operations, public relations and consulting in different fields: strategy, development, education. For the last 15 years I have been engaged in the direction and management of new projects. I am an enthusiastic learner who seeks innovation in everything I get involved with.

For six years I directed a successful Presidential initiative in Costa Rica (reporting directly to President Arias), which helped me enhance my skills in fund raising, directing a multidisciplinary team and dealing with many public and private institutions.

I have excellent communication skills, both in English and Spanish (some French). I consider myself to be a “people person” and find it easy to engage with the diverse range of people I have encountered during my career. I have an extraordinary ability to connect to people in a natural way, which is the key to have lead successful teams.

I am a self-starter, a results-oriented professional with strong and proven negotiation and team building skills. I am confident these attributes can help any organization achieve it´s goals.
