Foozoo’s resident heartthrob Naswar won a scholarship to a Leading school of modeling at the age of 18. Here he mastered the art of catwalk with valuable techniques that have gone on to serve him well. He also received training in personality development and grooming before going on to make his mark on the ramp, in advertising and fashion shows. This exposure helped Naswar develop his social skills and created a desire to know people and communicate with them in a meaningful and authentic manner.
He has since trained under local and international choreographers and gone on to showcase the work of international designers. He has won numerous titles, some of which include, Mr. Catwalk , Best Skin, 3rd runner up for Mr Sri Lanka 2012 and top 05 for Best model of the world -Srilanka 2013. He has also modelled for the prestigious Colombo Fashion Week, Academy of Design and Hameedia, Diliganz and Wills Designs. Having completed his HND in Business and Human resource management and a further year and half of Bcs computer science, Naswar went on to work for numerous private sector companies.
Additionally he also works to keep the environment clean, by directing the public conscience towards a cleaner, plastic free world. From beach cleanups to holding community meetings, Damith is the true green force in what Foozoo does.
Damith brings a wealth of passion to what we do at Foozoo Travel. Having travelled the world and having spent considerable time in places like South Korea and Europe, Damith is also aware of what travellers from different parts seek from a travel experience. Together with Dinesh, Damith has helped Foozoo Travel create an identity for itself. One that seeks to be far removed from a corporate approach to business.
Damith is involved with numerous environmental groups, being an active participant, organiser and ideator. His knack for bringing ideas and people together have resulted in movements and organisations that have brought about significant results. Some of his key achievements here include work and awareness in reforestation, crusade against palm oil plantations and protecting already endangered forests. He is also involved in animal welfare, particularly in the fight against elephants held in captivity.
Dinesh comes from a finance and advertising background. Having worked at a couple of banks in Sri Lanka he moved to advertising as a creative English writer and headed a local ad agency as a creative director for seven years. His combined experience in the advertising industry if over 12 years and he continues to work on select projects on a consultancy basis.
In 2016 Dinesh founded Foozoo Travel while spending time in Australia. Today the company is led by Dinesh, his partner Damith and close friend Bjoern.
Dinesh is an avid traveller. He has visited many different places around the world but he continues to be inspired and fascinated by his own home country/island, Sri Lanka. Dinesh is also passionate about safeguarding Sri Lanka as a travel destination. This has led to the business focusing on sustainability in every possible way and encourages its own customers to be mindful, considerate and informed about the impact of their travel.
Bolding running an LGBT welcoming travel operation, managing a highly rated guesthouse in Colombo, championing sustainability practices, encouraging experiences that make lasting impressions on their customers and being engaged in advocacy are just some of the things that keeps Dinesh on his toes and he’s enjoying every bit of it!
