From an early age, Lojo was involved in the family maritime business and dealt with washing, cleaning and polishing yachts of all sizes. Naturally, Lojo decided to join the industry and began his career on board a 68ft motor yacht where he developed an eye for detail and the ability to work quickly and precisely. Working whilst out at sea is Lojo’s favourite part of his job as he can give 100% energy and focus.
When he is not working, Lojo can be found jogging, in the gym, playing basketball or skiing.
