Tiff LiuSocial Media Coordinator
Tiff Liu is someone who's mind never leaves the ocean. Even though she's only been diving for a little less than two years, you can rarely have a conversation with her without touching on the subject of diving. Being a diver, sharks were naturally one of the most exciting things that she thought she would be able to see underwater; but it wasn't until she dove in the waters of Malapascua, Philippines that she learned the beauty and grace of thresher sharks and developed a new found love for sharks. There's nothing she wants more than to be with the animals she loves in the environment that they thrive in. In the meantime, you can find Tiff working full time in advertising in New York City constantly dreaming about her next encounter with a shark.
