Meet Our Team

The motivation I get from being able to connect with guests from different countries and walks of live shapes my everlasting determination to ensure that every one I meet aboard the Big Sky Explorer brings home precious memories along with them at the end of our trips. In the years as Head of Operations in the liveaboard industry in the Maldives, I have realized that the ocean will always be my greatest source of joy and confidence. My journey in this dynamic and rapidly-evolving industry, together with my undying passion for scuba diving and my love for our oceans, has taught and are still teaching me valuable lessons every day.

Join me as we set sail through the Philippines. I am honoured and privileged to be a part of your ultimate dive vacation onboard the Big Sky Explorer. See you soon!
