I have been working in travel and tourism for almost 10 years in varying roles and capacities. I have been a travel designer, guide, and consultant. Currently I am Chief Operating Officer at the Transformational Travel Council where I am responsible for strategy development and execution, product development, team management, and project organization, and delivery of education products and programs.
I am also Co-Owner of Travel Life Adventures with my wife, Kolena, where we create and curate meaningful travel experiences for travelers looking to deepen their connections when they travel. We work in Nepal, Chile, Mongolia, and Morocco.
My approach to travel and tourism is rooted in the belief that travel is our most powerful tool for connection and for positive change. In its most whole state travel and tourism is a partner in catalyzing regeneration, transformation, and thriving of both people and our planet. My deepest desire is to see communities, nature, and travelers engage in a beautiful relationship that honors and centers the wholeness of all things.
