About me

I am the Co-Founder & Organizer of the Extraordinary Travel Festival. This event is for the world's most avid, accomplished, and adventurous travelers in the world. The second Extraordinary Travel Festival will be held in Bangkok on November 15, 2024.

Join me in my quest to travel to every county in the world. I will share with you off-the-beaten path locations, unique experiences and must-see places on my blog, GlobalGaz. I have traveled to over 160 countries.

I am the Producer of the top-selling iTunes documentary, Hit The Road: India and the adventure-travel documentary Hit The Road: Cambodia.

Also, I am the host of the podcast, Counting Countries, where I interview people who have traveled to all 193 countries in the world.

I am also a travel industry speaker and I have organized scores of travel events, online and in-person.

Three words that describe why we should travel?

To grow, learn, and discover


  • Yes ... we just had two recent events and will be hosting new events starting in 2024. Thanks!

  • an amazing journey

  • This game ended up addicting, forget Wordle. This is the game for travel addicts. I like starting in Africa in a "corner" and work my way out. There are 54 countries in Africa, so more than any other continent.
