objective

I seek a carreer opportunity. I have been self emloyed as a tile setter for many years and I have chosen to reinvent myself and change carreers, mostly because my knees are starting to feel the pain of being on them day after day, year after year. I am in perfect health, don't get me wrong but just tired of being in the same position for so long.

I am an extremely hard worker, with many goals still left to achieve, ponctual, responsible and easy to get along with.
