Bob’s early career fueled his passion for travel. After 15 years working in the hotel, airline, rental car, outdoor recreation, and hospitality arenas, Bob became an independent consultant specializing in tourism development, public relations, and travel media. Bob has been featured on the cover of Travel Agent Magazine for bringing diversity to travel by combining auto vacations with traditional travel services. He is a frequent guest on local TV and radio, former co-host of Inside the Outdoors radio show in Salt Lake City and is a frequent contributor to KSL TV Studio 5 with a segment called “Family Friendly Adventures.” In 2010, Bob teamed up with Maverik convenience stores (300 + locations in 11 western states) to promote road trips, adventure, and recreation as Maverik Adventure Getaways. One of Bob’s greatest passions is to lead groups on scenic adventures and sightseeing tours throughout the west and has been doing it since 1992. Bob has served as president of the Utah chapter of Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International, board and committee positions with  the Utah Society of Association Executives, Utah chapter of Meeting Professionals International, and Grand Circle Association. He and his wife live in southwest Utah and spend their time together hiking, biking, skiing and road tripping.
