Summary of Experience

A lot of experience in sales related jobs, recently at Quiksilver, Roxy, DC-shoes.
But I do also have experience in Hospitality (I studied hotelmanagement) and worked/ travelled abroad.

After my sales experiences I'm very interested to other departments related to product development, production, purchasing, retail, buying, or...

I quit my job and took a couple a months off to travel but realized that my heart really is within the surf industry and I'm eager to go back working asap!
