Ryan Eric Ramolete
Senior Account Executive
A son of an architect, “Rye” has always had a sharp eye for anything and everything creative. Aspired at a young age to be an interior designer, then an educator through college and now a 5 year seasoned AE, this fish draws his inspiration from natural and modern works of art. Outside of the office, you can find him growing and experimenting with his plants or coordinating and planning weddings and travels.
Andrea has been in and out of the bowl since 2000, having recently returned from a stint working in government. Her decision to return “home” to Big Fish brings new knowledge and experience on top of the 20+ years already invested in marketing, advertising and communications. Andrea is excited about the possibilities and opportunity during a period of economic rebuilding for Guam and is looking forward to sharing her insight with local businesses and government agencies from the bowl.
At an early age, "Oshay" found her love and passion for creating. That love and passion is shown in her art and film. Her previous work experience as a Visual Merchandising and Marketing Specialist, working with high luxury brands, along with her 7 years of graphic design experience has equipped her with the flair and ambition needed to succeed.
Outside the bowl you can find her up before sunrise tending to her plants that she managed to keep alive!
