Meet the team
The BloomDirect Team is a community of employees with a shared purpose – to understand and support an ever evolving industry in which florists can flourish.
I come from a long line of farmers, but as a teen I caught the traveling bug. I have traveled pretty extensively all over the world. Whether snowboarding in the US, scuba diving in South East Asia or backpacking across Europe, I am always up for an adventure. I love experiencing different places, meeting local people and trying new things.
I have been married to an amazing woman for almost twenty years that has helped me raise two wonderful sons. I could not ask for a better family. We have run many small businesses together over the years, so we are very familiar the obstacles that each of you face.
I am extremely passionate about working alongside BloomDirect with all of the incredible and diverse people in the flower industry.
My job is to make sure that every florist has a great experience with BloomDirect from start to finish. Having worked in customer care and the service industry for 15 years, finding solutions and solving problems is what I do best and BloomDirect gives me the opportunity to do that plus more. In my spare time I enjoy taking part in marine conservation rolls as a Scuba Diver and traveling the world.
I’m a sales professional and traveling nomad. I currently live in the Philippines but hail from Wales. Working with BloomDirect and the people has been an amazing experience, the company has given me freedom and opportunity which I’m truly grateful for. In my spare time I teach English online and love to play the keyboard.

I was born and raised in Mindanao, Philippines. I come from a proud family of fishermen and forest construction workers. I am a mother of 3 and also an avid scuba diver and international traveler. I have been part of the BloomDirect team now for 2 years. My daily duties include building relationships as well as organizing and distributing orders with our florist partners. I enjoy being able to speak to artisan florists and resolve any problems together. I’m most proud of my work ethic and attention to detail. I feel very grateful to have such plenteous opportunities to learn more about this wonderful industry everyday.
I was born in Zambia and grew up in the UK. I’ve spent most of my “nomadic” adult life overseas in over 20 countries over the past 20 years.
Family is everything for me, I’m a proud father of three who approaches life with an open mind and I never takes myself too seriously.
I’m an outgoing, positive person who loves to problem solve. BloomDirect has given me a great opportunity to thrive as a team player.
In my spare time I tutor English, teach scuba diving, exercise and travel as well as raising our newborn daughter.
By profession and heart I am a teacher from Bohol, Philippines. I’m also a proud and permanent member of staff at BloomDirect, where I love connecting with each individual florist. This ability to help others gives me a heightened level of happiness. I feel very blessed to be able to help others in both vocations in my life.
I was born and grew up in Bohol, Philippines. I’ve been working for the company for over a year now. I’m passionate about helping others. While there can be similar problems, each florist sees things differently, and working with them is a unique and rewarding experience. I take satisfaction knowing I was able to solve the problem, and they are grateful. I also like facing challenges to improve relationships with our florists. In my spare time I enjoy listening to music and sharing precious time with my niece and family.
I’m a designer by nature and embracer of change. A true organisation freak and multi-passionate creator with a curious spirit. With a background in task management, graphic design and online marketing campaigns I delight in working alongside the BloomDirect Team to solve problems in unique and inventive ways. For the past year it has been a big passion of mine to learn about the floristry industry and flowers, everyday I learn something new!
I’m extremely excited about what BloomDirect’s unique business model has to offer; this company is creating waves and it is an honour and privilege to be a part of it. If I’m not sat at my computer, you’ll most likely find me either practicing yoga poses or enjoying the outdoors.
