Paolo started scuba diving at a young age in Bohol, Philippines and fell in love with the ocean almost immediately. In 2017, he became certified as a PADI Open Water Instructor and developed a love for underwater photography. Later in 2019, he took an interest in freediving and became a certified Molchanovs freediver, learning to appreciate the ocean with one tank and one breath. Presently, he continues to work alongside the tourism industry and tourism groups to not only promote the underwater world of Bohol, but also to help preserve its beauty. He also balances his time being the resort owner of Bohol Beach Club and an underwater photographer.
