I am a Peruvian lawyer with commercial contract experience. I hold an MBA from Macquarie Graduate School of Management, and I’m currently finalising my requalification as an Australian lawyer through the LPAB at University of Sydney. I have also been a teacher of Law and Political Science at the Naval Academy of Peru.
I have lived in Sydney and the Central Coast for over 10 years starting and running successful businesses. This gave me an inside view on the potential
opportunities as well as the difficulties that the MSMEs face.
I am passionate about international relationships and trade. I would like to contribute to build a stronger relationship between Australia and Latin America.
I am an Australian citizen, who speaks fluent Spanish and English and is also comfortable with Italian and Portuguese.
Outside of working I love playing soccer, surfing, golf, meeting new people, traveling, music, reading, movies and photography.
Our goal is to bring people together to:
- build professional capabilities in trade
- elevate the profile of trade
- advocate the benefits and opportunities of trade
- facilitate networking
- improve the performance and success of companies in global trade
- boost the efficiency of trade processes.
