I’m William, a Berliner with Australian and German roots who grew up in Sydney.
I am a highly analytical with great people skills who is currently looking for a role as a data scientist / analyst.
Recently I have completed a bootcamp in data analytics at Ironhack Berlin where I have learnt the following fundamentals:
- machine learning
- analytical thinking
Prior to the bootcamp I worked for over 7 years in the tourism sector, with 4 years as a founder of When in Berlin and 7 years as a tour guide guiding families, individuals as well as VIPs across Berlin and central Europe.
My time in tourism has given me hard skills that can be broadly applied and include:
- business development
- content marketing
- community management
- project management
- business analysis
- VR (we launched Berlin’s first VR Tour)
Complimenting this, I have also nurtured a whole heap of social skills while in tourism:
- I can get comfortable with anyone
- communicate across cultures
- educate while also be entertaining
- present to groups of hundreds
- keep colleagues smiling while they run an event or project.
In addition to this I have extensive customer service experience in a variety of industries (banking, higher education, nano tech & retail) as well as two degrees from the University of Sydney, one in Commerce (Accounting / Business Information Systems) and one in Arts (Germanic Studies).
Language wise I am a native English speaker, but due to having a German father I grew up speaking German and can work in German (TestDaf C2 certified). I also possess a German passport (i.e. I can work anywhere in the EU).
Lastly, I have a few big passions ( economics, food, football, gaming and politics) and if you would like to chat to me about them or anything else, then I look forward to your message!
