Lisa Glancy, older and wiser sister of Jonathan, grew up in Seattle in a bicultural Mexican-American household and studied Urban Planning and International Studies at the U. of Washington. Lisa worked and lived in Mexico City for over four years before moving to Tulum to become a Divemaster in early 2011. There she fell in love with the community and their intricate connection to the natural environment, as well as living in the Caribbean. Lisa currently lives in Los Angeles and is working towards a Master of Urban and Regional Planning so that she can further benefit communities like Tulum in environmentally sustainable economic growth.
Quetzal Hernández Rustige is a German-Mexican who moved to Tulum at age 5 to be raised practically in the water. On the Caribbean coast, with a house pushed up against the jungle, Quetzal had an upbringing that would leave most people envious. He studied International Business at Hochschule Pforzheim and a Certificate in Water Treatment Systems in Stuttgart, Germany. Quetzal is excited to share his love of Tulum with an international audience in hopes to attract more responsible tourism as the town grows rapidly. He is currently working as a locations assistant for a movie in the Yucatan Peninsula.
