Professional
I am the President and Co-Founder of the BootsnAll Travel Network. In 1999 a few friends and I started building the travel community called “BootsnAll”. After lots of ups and downs in building a self-funded and sustainable publishing business, we refocused on Long-Term/Indie Travel in 2011.

In December of 2013, BootsnAll Acquired AirTreks, and I became the CEO of AirTreks as well.

Highlights
