About me:

I had 15 years of Project Management experience in shipbuilding & ship repairing industry. I'm a highly organized & self-motivated fast learner & passionate in coaching the youth about characters building. 

Oil & gas industry is always an interested career path of my job profession in project management after the shipbuilding & ship repairing. This is mainly due to the previous technical work collaboration shared among the field experts who offered sound knowledge about the offshore operations and applications during the upstream production. 

My experience taught me the fact that no one is indispensable to anyone else. To succeed in career, I had learnt to be a patient and a diplomatic problem-solver and never give up to lifelong learning & sociability. Hence, in order to maintain competitive in the realm of Project Management, I had to escape from the comfort zone to grab any opportunity for career growth by embracing new challenges to grow my skills, value, and job satisfaction.
