About me

A bachelor in Marine Biology with an expertise in Oceanography, Scuba Diving Instructor and CSR experience with a focus on sustainable tourism
I started my career by opening my own dive business in 1989. Based in Rio de Janeiro, we focused on tailor made dive trips and courses enhancing the underwater experience of our clients, rather than just selling a course or a dive trip
After a few years in Rio, I decided to improve my expertise and knowledge in the hospitality and recreation industry and took off to work abroad in places such as the Bahamas, Turks & Caicos, Mexico, Maldives, Egypt and on cruise ship along the Caribbean and Mediterranean coast.
The years abroad gave me the necessary knowledge and expertise to proceed further towards managerial positions in the recreational and hospitality industry, my last assignment as Regional Manager for a multinational diving & water sports company in the Middle East gave me the chance to lead different projects with major hotel chains around Asia, Middle East and North Africa.
