I have been to over 50 destinations, met hundreds of amazing people, have seen mind-blowing places and sceneries.

I have planned more than 35 trips in the past 10+ years.   

As I was planning my big trip this year it blew my mind how the travel planning experience has not changed at all. It continues to be so time consuming and scattered. 

From my travels I have countless stories to tell, some hilarious and others goosebump worthy. The photo you see below is from a 19 hour adventure that ended up becoming one of my greatest stories – an 18 mile hike on the edge of the Hawaiian ridges that I had to trek back at night in the pouring rain… 

I didn’t know if I was getting out of there alive. Many lessons learned, amazing story to tell. 

Travel has given me so many memories, a love for life, great stories to tell, and a fearless attitude. 

Regardless whether we travel to escape and reset, experience new cultures or go on epic adventures, travel is a huge part of most people’s lives in this day and age. And I want to make it easy for all of us to do more of it so we can have more unforgettable moments.

So I decided it’s time to change the travel planning experience and build a travel app, MAVE, that helps us plan our best trips in minutes so we can spend more time making memories! 

It’s about time!
