Please tell us something about yourself, your family and your interests?

I am a father of two sons 17 and 11 years old. I am a divorced single parent. I qualified as a veterinarian in 2002 and joined the private sector in 2018. My interest is in good governance and leadership.

What drew you to the program you are studying at Athena? Is it living up to your expectations?

I have a technical background but I wanted to have a business-related qualification. Athena Global Education offers an opportunity to obtain an MBA whilst continuing to work thus improving my career in a short time.

What would you like to learn next? What are your next career steps?

The MBA outline in General Management is well balanced and provides a good oversight of business both locally and internationally. A PhD will be an option for future studies.

Are you working somewhere? If yes, what do you feel is the most enjoyable/rewarding aspect of your job?

I am the Senior Quality Assurance Manager at an international export-import house. I enjoy identifying consumer needs and import regulations and adjusting our operations to meet those requirements and assuring business continuity.

What do you see as your greatest strength?

Patience and Persistence

What is your most cherished memory?

The birth of my son.

Which country have you always wanted to visit and why?

The United States of America because growing up I heard so much on the media about its culture and lifestyle.

Do you have professional role models? Who are they and what do you find inspiring about them and their accomplishments?

I look up to a lot of people, some for the successes they achieved in their careers and others for motivating me when I needed some encouragement.

If you could go on a road trip with anyone in history, who would it be?

It would be Nelson Mandela to understand his outlook on life, what he went through, and his tremendous ability to forgive.

What have you learnt from your experiences that you would like to pass on to others?

Time is the most valuable asset we have. Do not waste it.
