About You and Book Your Dive...

My name:

My job function in the company:
Years in business:

About Book Your Dive:
We are a review based booking engine for the scuba industry. We try to make it as simple as possible to book a dive. This could be an openwater course or a complete package including accommodation.
Business mission/values:
We make booking a dive online easy. We help divers to make a safe choice by publishing reviews from fellow divers.

About You, "The Professional"...

How I was introduced to the professional diving industry:
10 years ago I became a scuba instructor. I traveled the world and the seven seas for 2 years before I got land locked in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. This is where I tuned my skills in online marketing and started Book Your Dive. 
Words of wisdom for those starting their career in the diving industry:
"It is never to late to start" Just do it.
Best way to keep a competitive edge:
Don't look back, keep moving. Change and introduce new things. Keep it simple as possible but make sure you become the best in what you do.

About You, "The Person"...

Something you'd find on my bucket list:
 I would love to be in the water during the Sardine Run in South Africa and afterwords fly to Galapagos and witness the schooling hammerheads.
What I am most proud of: 
Building a company like Book Your Dive from scratch with a bootstrapped budget.
Favorite quote:
"A diver takes nothing but pictures, leaves nothing but bubbles and kills nothing but time."
