Stockholm School of Economics

"Initiative is the king."

I am a digital-based product/project/account manager with 3 years of experience, living in Stockholm. I have both analytical (Computer Engineering and Mathematics) and art/sociological (Art Theory and Criticism) degrees in my bachelor studies, and now I am a MSc. in Management candidate in Stockholm School of Economics.

I believe a product, or an organization, can truly satisfy the needs of its market only with consumer/market oriented approaches. I embrace design approaches aligning with Service Design method, and market-sensing organizational structures.

I enjoy high-tech. I love art and esthetic in every form. I feel lucky that I have studied and worked in the areas that I am truly passionate about.

Follower of the transformational approach in leadership. Resolute enabler.

Other areas of interest includes Economics, Psychology, Social Psychology, Philosophy, Cultural Studies, Rhetoric, Abstract Mathematics.
