I am currently a student from France in a gap year between my master 1 and 2 of international Business at Paris School of Business. I have a Bachelor of Business administration at University of the Sunshine Coast in Australia and also studied at San Diego State University. I have several small experiences in Business development and I want to become specialized in the emergent energies industry. I am excited to be at Emergy because I am able to learn a lot and bring my contribution to a good cause. As an outdoor sport enthusiast (surf, ski etc.) I have always been sensitive to environmental problems and want to work towards sustainability as much as I can.
For my past experience I did my electric motor rewinding, Bohol installation and irrigation pumps.
