In addition, I have 3 years of client experience as a technology consultant and am an MBA graduate. As a consultant, I have analyzed and improved business processes and shared expertise by coaching junior members.

After relocating to Canada, I have decided to switch my career and break into the entertainment industry. I am amazed by the hard work and dedication that goes into creating products that make players and viewers happy.
