The Aqua Fun Academy Team

Équipe de direction de l'AFA

Omid Amirtabar


Omid est motivé et façonné par la nature internationale de son enfance, qui l'a amené à apprendre quatre langues et a incité sa passion pour les événements mondiaux, l'amenant à étudier les sciences politiques internationales et l'histoire militaire. Son passe-temps traditionnel, la natation, l'a influencé dès le début et l'expérience de leadership aquatique qu'il a acquise en cours de route l'a naturellement conduit à l'Aqua Fun Academy, où il peut mettre à profit toutes les compétences qu'il a acquises dans son voyage.

John Koo


John has over seven years of aquatic teaching and leadership experience, putting him on a pedestal amongst others in the aquatics industry (He knows that’s not true, he just wishes it was…). None the less, as an executive at Aqua Fun Academy, he works with clients and students to ensure full satisfaction whether it be through a phone call, or by getting into the water to offer assistance. His only goal is to use his past experiences to build long term relationships with clients. When John has free time on his hands, he is busy studying for his Doctorate at Google University by surfing the web.
