For 4 years after I arrived in the UK, I worked in informal jobs as a cleaner within the cleaning industry, as most immigrants from Latin America with no language skills start their journeys. To save for my studies and pay my living costs, I used to clean toilets, buildings, industrial kitchens, houses, clubs, schools and offices. The biggest turning point in my career was thanks to key Coaches and Mentors in my life that enlightened my understanding of all the transferable, hard and soft skills I had gained during those 4 years when I thought I had learned very little. Once I discovered my potential, I progressed from cleaning toilets to joining one of the world’s largest aviation companies within the exciting Aviation & Aerospace industry. Since 2014, I have grown from being an Apprentice to becoming the Senior Manager of Business Development & Strategy of a leading company in the UK and worldwide.
Strong recruiting experience of +500 positions on behalf of the most recognised and biggest airlines in around 50 countries. Positions ranging from C-Level, specialised consultants, Senior management to operational positions like instructors, pilots, engineers, maintenance personnel and cabin crew, all qualified on the most commercialised aircraft by the biggest manufacturers such as Airbus, Boeing, Embraer, ATR, Bombardier, Saab and Fokker. This experience has allowed me to immerse myself profoundly on all the details and key aspects of a recruitment process and its strategies, giving me the unique opportunity to access to valuable recruiting insights to coach my trainees to excel in their career expectations with a strong background in recruiting.

Martial Arts & Fitness
Martial Arts have been paramount in my life for 25 years, teaching me not only discipline, determination and competitiveness, but also strengthening me within via meditation and conscious breathing. I competed for several years at a professional level and as a Professional Instructor trained numerous people from all ages and professional backgrounds, acquiring strong people, interpersonal and body language reading skills. Nowadays, I am also a Fitness Advance Practitioner and advocate even more the importance of exercise as triggers of high professional performance, strong body language and personal brand. Therefore, my coaching style and programs are complemented and influenced by the benefits of these lifestyles and strong experience. In Aviation, I train cadets wanting to become pilots and engineers in Cockpit Self-Defence and I participate in Marketing and Advertisement Campaigns for recognised gym chain.
