Polly Philipson



A water baby by nature, Polly grew up on the ocean-loving Isle of Wight, in England, and travelled to many countries with her family throughout her developing years. This culminated with her life changing work teaching English to young students in remote Kyrgyzstan. Returning to family in New Zealand, she discovered her love for scuba diving and started the exciting journey to become a PADI scuba instructor.
Working first in Indonesia, Polly was determined to attain the highest accolades in diving and went on to gain invaluable experiences teaching in the UK and the Caribbean. Island Divers, on the Isle of Wight, provided Polly with the opportunity to become a successful assistant manager; with her background in travel, she excelled at leading dive trips abroad.

Moving to the Lesser Antilles in 2010, gave Polly the opportunity to develop her freelance writing and marketing business, alongside exploring the underwater delights that the Caribbean has to offer.

Concurrently, her passion for critical writing and theoretical studies led her to gain a BA (Hons) in Visual Culture at Brighton University, UK. Combining her interest in art with cultural and social history, she focused on developing a range of critical writing approaches to vocalize visual language. These skills helped Polly to become a published writer in scuba diving and travel destination magazines. Establishing her interest in website development  at University, she has designed and produced stunning websites for a range of businesses.
Polly seamlessly blends her creativity in media with her interests in travel, culture and marine activities. She has an exemplary talent at capturing experiences in the written form and comes highly recommended.
