Our Team :
Ollie, from the Channel Island of Guernsey, found the Island his home away from home for 30 years, before finally settling here in 2013. He was drawn by his love of the Island, its sunshine and amazing waves. Previously, Ollie worked as an Investment Manager in the finance industry for 12 years. Since being in Lanzarote Ollie has worked in both the tourism and property sectors. Ollie´s always enjoyed a glass of wine (or two!) and has developed his knowledge of winemaking and viticulture. which particularly fascinated him here on Lanzarote. He now holds the WSET Level 2 Award in Wines & Spirits which he passed with distinction. After work, there´s a good chance you will find him in the water!
Paddy, originally from Dublin, Ireland, has been living & teaching Surfing in Lanzarote since 2014. He was due to stay for 6 months, but instead fell in love with the weather, the surf and the Island’s landscape and has been here ever since. Prior to Lanzarote, Paddy’s background was in the NGO Environmental Education sector. Paddy, who holds a B.A. in Outdoor Education & Geography & the WSET Level 2 Award in Wines & Spirits, finds the history, culture and sustainability of Lanzarote winemaking fascinating and enjoys sharing this unique story with others. If you’re looking for him outside of work hours, he will more than likely be trying to ride down the face of a wave!
Dan originally from Newcastle, arrived in Lanzarote in 2013 and has worked in various sports coaching roles on the Island. Like all of us, Dan has a love of the Island’s climate, culture and natural beauty. Living in the countryside, Dan is a keen amateur gardener and always has something bearing fruit in his garden. Dan also loves experimenting with wines and recently he’s carried on his family’s tradition of making homemade fruit wines, though it’s yet to be seen if his house will find its way onto our list of bodegas! Outside of work, Dan is one of the Island’s strongest swimmers and a keen surfer.
