Leo was born in Colombia in 1985 moved to Europe at a very early age. Brought up in Germany and Spain, he landed on Malta in 2007; since then he fell in love with the little Rock where his language skills developed even further. Although he had never dived before, Rita Vella and Diveshack adopted him and offered him his very first Job in the Diving Industry.
From his Open Water Certification, Rita encouraged him to move up the ladder and become an Open Water Scuba Instructor which he achieved by the end of 2007.
Up to today all his diving experience has been based in Malta, Gozo and Comino hence his love for these Islands.
In the interim he also had the opportunity to experience different industries, working at HSBC Malta & General Genetic Europe where his customer service management experience grew.
Working as Customer Service Manager and Open Water Scuba instructor at Diveshack he has had the freedom to combine all skills learned in the past years in the customer service field.
Leo teaches all levels of diving in various languages including English, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and French.
Leo is very much a product of Diveshack and his enthusiasm for SCUBA diving is infectious.
