Career Objectives

 

In July 2009 I opened my own creative business in Switzerland where I teach kids and adults to draw and paint, as well as art history. I really enjoy being my own boss and constantly thinking about ideas to develop myself and my business further. My objective for my career is to be able to give back some of my talents and experience, and create an environment that is happy, healthy as well as creative and fun. I am really interested in the arts, history, philosophy, politics, sociology, psychology, health and well-being, and would like to be able to combine all of these disciplines in order to make a difference and a positive impact in people's lives and the world.
