Dr. Jwanwat Ahriyavraromp

Dr. Jirayuth, known as Tan, the man behind Shelldon’s success, is a doctoral degree in Finance and Economics with several academic awards. Following his doctoral graduation, he became a Managing Director at Shellhut Co., Ltd., a shellcraft manufacturing and exporting company located in BKK, Thailand. The family-led company was established in 2000 to build on their shared passion for the sea and the creatures that live in and around it. From the starting point of working at Shellhut, Tan decided he wanted to do something out of the ordinary to encourage interest in sealife. He came up with the concept of animation involving seashells. It took years of research and development before he was satisfied that what he had was different and special enough to build into a world of seashell animation and cartoons.
