About me

  • International Experience

I grew up in Corsica and South America until the age of 8 before moving to England where I learned English, attended an International Boarding School and went on to one of the top Universities to study Economics where I achieved a first-class honour. I have always thought I was going to do a graduate program in investment banking, because I thought money was the most important factor. After speaking with people who did this job, I quickly learnt that a lot of them weren’t happy. Whilst I tried to figure out what I wanted to do with my life, I took the opportunity to do a gap year and travelled to Australia where I fell in love with the country and lifestyle this country offered her. When returning to London, I started my first job in Recruitment, and quickly found out a passion for sales and Cyber Security. Knowing that I wanted to return to Australia, I used my 4 year’s experience to get sponsored and is now working for the biggest Cyber Security company in Australia to help them find the best talent.
