Joram Zimmermann - IT and Marketing Manager
Joram fell in love with Pulau Pef already three years ago and finally got stranded here!
Born and grown up in Zurich, Switzerland, Joram did his apprenticeship as a software developer and his studies in software engineering right after. An interesting, diverse and instructional "office job" at a technology company followed, where Joram worked in multiple projects for different customers.
When the company planned to build up a new unit for providing application management services to customers, Joram joined the initially small team and took part in establishing the service poprtfolio and recruiting new colleagues.
To compensate for the indoor work, (mostly) in front of the computer, Joram and his girlfriend Amanda went exploring the world during their vacations. In 2013, the couple travelled in south east Asia for three months, starting in the Philippines and onwards through Vietnam, Cambodia, Singapore, Palau and finally they ended up in Indonesia. There they met Joram's father who surpriesed everyone with a trip to the Raja4Divers resort on Pulau Pef.
As a passionate diver, Joram enjoyed Raja Ampat very much. Not only below the water but also above, this is one reason why Raja4Divers never left his mind after leaving back to Switzerland.
Joram thrives for new experiences and learning new things. The time seemed right in 2016, to leave sweet home and check out what living and working on a remote island far away from european civilization really means. Good thing that Skype works also well on Pulau Pef, as without it, the long distance relationship with Amanda would be even more hard. To mention is that there are only very few pictures of Joram - the reason is simple: most of the time he is behind the lens himself.
Joram speaks German, English and IT.
