How long have you been in the industry?
14 years.  
Which of our 118 islands have you visited?
Tahiti, Bora Bora, Rangiroa, The Brando Tetiaroa 
What activity would you highly recommend to your clients?
Swimming with the lemon sharks at the Blue Lagoon and the pink sand beach from Rangiroa 
Swimming with the sharks, rays, jack fish and parrot fish in Bora Bora. 
Both were amazing experiences, but also very different. 
What is your favourite memory?
All of it! Swimming in what's called the Billionare's pool, the amazing accommodation that is on offer, there is honestly something for everyone. The water activities and experiences, the sunsets are spectacular.  It truly is one of the most amazing travel destinations in the world, I can honestly say that it is by far my favourite beach destination and I've never seen so many shades of blue in my life!!
What would you love to do next time you visit?
I would honestly love to go back with my family and do the same experiences again, they never get old. I would also love to charter a yacht for a few days and cruise around for a little bit between some of the islands. 
Piece of advice or something you did not know before experiencing the destination firsthand:
The tides really have minimal change due to being so close to the amphidromic point. Basically, as the lunar tidal swell makes it's way around the earth and through ocean basins, it gets broken up and bounces off continents and islands along the way. As a result, the islands here don't incur the same daily fluctuating water levels as some other popular beach destinations around the world.
