Lorenzo hails from Samana, in the Dominican Republic. Humpback whales regularly frequent Samana Bay, and in the early 1990’s, Lorenzo was was present when YONAH began to assess their numbers. In 1997, Lorenzo worked as a park ranger for the whale season, furthering his interest in whales (and photography). In 2000, Lorenzo attained the position of “Coordinador de Observation de Ballenas”, in charge of whale tourism oversight. It was at this time that he first visited the Silver Bank, and was enthralled with the experience of being in-water with the humpbacks. Lorenzo began working with Aquatic Adventures in 2006, where his lifetime of whale observation serves him well as a guide, tender operator, and photographer/videographer. Lorenzo also holds a PADI Advanced Open Water license.
