Jacks, named for his amazing Michael Jackson dance moves, started working for Blue Ventures in January 2013 and has been a huge asset to volunteer life. He coordinates the dry-day activities for expeditions and is frequently involved in the education and conservation programmes by assisting with Saturday School, mangrove tours, and as the BVE's representative at BVC meetings. Though not an Andava native, Jacks speaks the Vezo language and knows a lot about the culture. He is a PADI Advanced Open Water diver and is very enthusiastic about learning more about the ocean and marine conservation. In his free time, Jacks is a talented painter and model pirogue builder.
