About me >> CV

My name is Max-Leonhard von Schaper and this is my personal blog space. Specifically interested in economics, politics & society I want to use this blog as a collection, but also as an opportunity to present myself.

But if you know any project recruitment, please let me know. I really want to work for Wynn Cotai because it’s a HUGE area,and the Director of Rooms just came to work for Wynn Cotai, she is Assistant DOR in The Grand Ho Tram resort where I’m working right now, but I can’t contact her.
