A passionate entrepreneur with a keen interest in writing!

About Me

Having lived and worked in 6 countries and multiple industries, I have a very unique experience and entrepreneurial perspective to offer you! At the age of 15, I began with event management and organization on the tiny island nation of Curacao, a speck on the map I call home. I went on to promote and host multiple private events with upcoming artists from the Caribbean region, all before graduating high school.

In college, whilst pursuing my dual major in Finance and Entrepreneurship with a minor in Law, I gained valuable work experience at a top 30 exporter from the US, dealing in timber and paper products. A job that sounds boring, but in reality, gave me a wealth of experience and knowledge that I continue to use to this day. 

After college, I moved to China where my brother and I operate a trading office that helps clients source products from the South East Asian region directly from manufacturers. We are primarily involved in the construction, décor, furniture, and real estate industry, but have dealt in products ranging from electronics, textiles, FMCG (fast-moving consumer goods), and more. To complete our first large sourcing project of 82 apartment units, I moved to Uganda, where whilst simultaneously working on our construction contract, I was harvesting teak wood from the forests of South Sudan and Congo, as well as Mahogany from Uganda, for export to India. 

After my 3 year stint in Uganda, I went on further to develop business relations in India with our existing clients. Here, I also opened and operated a hydroponics lettuce farm, built by my own two hands from the ground up. We ran this successfully until the COVID crisis, and after some consideration, sold the project. Currently, I am now living in Panama, where I am sourcing and trading premium beers such as Stella Artois, Corona Extra, and Budweiser. 

These are some short snippets of the experiences I have accumulated so far in this movie that is my life, and I’m sure a unique perspective and a broad subject range such as mine would be appreciated on your next writing job.
