Numbers and spreadsheets are my passion.
My accounting experience ranges from a small chain of organic stores in New Zealand to a worldwide group of steel companies with 10,000 employees; from accounts payable to group consolidation. Whether you need help with small-scale bookkeeping or complex accounting processes, I will be a reliable partner in reaching your goal.
With over 10 years experience in working with MS Excel I also look forward to support you by creating and optimising your individual Excel solutions. Whether you need a file to be created from scratch, existing files to be cleaned up or automated with advanced functions and macros, I am here to help. I also enjoy enhancing your Excel files visually with pleasing formatting, charts and dashboards.
While I am fluent in English, I also speak German (native language) and am currently learning Italian.
