About Me

Hi, my name is Patrick and I am a Project Manager at DHL Supply Chain. Here I work with my colleagues to improve the warehouse processes and preformance for multiple customers at the Tiel 1 site. I characterize myself as a driven problem solver who works best in small teams, where I have no issue taking the lead.

In my free time I like to hack away at, building my Home Assistant setup or go swimming.

I am most skilled in: Lean Project Management, SQL and Python.
